Weather Man

How in the hell can you turn snow and ice into an all day running program? I know there is a weather channel and all, and it is dedicated to weather 24 hours a day, but that is about weather all over the United States. Here in Oklahoma, we are watching a 24 hour fucking newscast about ice and snow. They keep showing the same Oklahoma map with the same color indicators over and over and over. Then they show some idiot standing on the side of the road while cars go by. Who in the hell signed up for that job? Really, do you want to stand by the side of the icy road and watch a bunch of cars sliding all over the road that could easily pop up on that curb and plow you down? What is your official title over at the news office? Dumbass? And then they flash to a bunch of pictures people have taken of their swing sets covered in ice and sent them in to the news. Don't you have something better to do, or are you that much of a loser that on a free day from work, all you can think of to do is snap pictures of an ice covered tree and send it to your buddies at KFOR?

All the while I'm missing quality TV programming like Oprah and Dr. Phil. Seriously, the weather programming we are forced to watch on local TV is worse than the actual storm.
