My best friend from childhood married a German after high school and has lived there all her adult life and one of the things that drove her crazy when she would visit during some storm was the way CNN and others give the storms their own logo and theme song hahahaha. It's not as much the trend now but I remember every freaking big event of any kind having its own logo and theme song back in the 80s.
    In the Miami area, the local young female reporters compete for the beach assignments. They compete for how clever their costumes are. I saw one young reporter once decked out all in pink --boots, raincoat, rain hat--all pink. But actually she was standing in a small puddle of water safely under a concrete parking garage.

    random musings --hurricane edition #2.

    1. Just got first outer band here. Lightening, thunder, some rain, not much wind.
    2. Okay. Now I am going to call him out. CNN Chad Myers is in running for the biggest a**hole of this hurricane. He was the one predicting levees will break and flood inland Miami--where I am. He is promulgating that theory to every expert who will talk to him. The experts are looking at him strangely
    3. Now Chad Myers is warning that his theory will cause the alligators to come out of the Everglades and populate suburbs.

    @Bear. So glad you found the John Oliver take on Chad Myers. That made my day.
