Either ride out the storm in the cellar with Auntie Em, Uncle Henry, Hunk, Zeke and Hickory, or take the Dorothy Gale route: complain about the TV coverage to Professor Marvel, rescue Toto from a local dog-napping gang of underpaid Meterologists led by Miss Gulch, and pray for a cell signal in your ramshackle prairie house, as your wi-fi hasn't worked since Uncle Henry knocked the Direct TV dish off the roof because RFD-TV was interrupted by some weather alert in the middle of U.S. Farm Report.

For those who choose the latter, knock yourselves out. I'll be in the cellar asking Hickory if he'd ever met Jed Clampett.
“Underpaid”? No such word.

You don’t get what you deserve. You get what you negotiate. It’s nobody’s fault but your own if you consent to a bad deal.

Well, if you're getting that I think Meteorologists are underpaid from what I wrote, I guess you think the rest of it is based in reality as well. I'll tell the gang you send your regrets, and that you can't make the Emerald City All-Class Reunion this year.

Not that it's the topic at hand, but I don't care what any Meteorologist is paid. Their success or failure to reap financial reward for their efforts is of no concern to me. The subject had already been brought up (its' relevance notwithstanding), and I was tying it into the overall theme of tornadoes and their place in a polite society.

I suppose that I should leave the levity for those with the chainsaws. If it weren't for sarcasm, there might be no chasm at all.

We had it again. Another meteorologist going off on viewers for complaining about cutting into programming.

Unprofessional.

Broadcast TV is a free service that is there to entertain when necessary and to inform when necessary. Sometimes one is more necessary than the other... like in the case of dangerous weather conditions. That being said... I felt this meteorologist was way over the top and out of line. He should have just ignored any complaints and done his job, which is to inform... not to admonish people.

I enjoy the severe weather coverage. When I see there is a storm outbreak I go to that markets TV station website and watch their coverage for hours and hours. Last night I was watching coverage from Kansas City from their local CBS affiliate. Good stuff!

When bad weather comes to my area, I go to www.weather.gov and/or www.noaa.gov/weather.com. No hype, no entertainment, no exaggerations, and no BS. Straight up, quick and reliable.

A weather radio is also handy.

I’m responsible for my own safety, not a meteorologist, weather specialist, or weather forecaster.

Screaming at viewers for voicing an opinion is unprofessional, arrogant, and ignorant.

HL101: you're a failed meteorologist. So your opinions on this topic do not matter.

Maybe you aren't a meteorologist (really, who cares if you are or not), but you are definitely a failure as a member of this forum.

Everyone here is a member. Nobody here has failed at that unless they are not a member. What am I missing here?
