I am sure everyone is aware by now about the Derecho that went threw the east coast a few weeks ago. That night I was watching TV and received
absolutely no warning. Suddenly the winds kick up, orange, green, and blue lighting is flashing and I am home alone with small children thinking it's
I've noticed since then that when I do see a weather warning it's for counties nowhere near me, but when we get a severe storm (we've had some
doozies lately) we haven't seen a single warning. No red line across the top of the TV, and even when I check the weather.com site, they don't
even have a warning going when I clearly see it coming on the radar.
A few moments ago it happened again. We had a severe storm come this way, I watched it for about an hour and waited to see the warnings pop up.
Nothing. Cloud to ground lighting, torrential rain...all the makings needed to warn people....nothing.
So what's up with that? Is anyone else's weather channel not keeping up? Where I live they will usually drive you nuts with the warnings long
before they show up, but since the severe weather has gone up, they have gone down on the warnings.
