So this is why I don't watch and/or listen to the weather, and it's because the weather people 'round here make statements like this: "You know how when you shake a can of soda and then pop it open and it just explodes and sprays everywhere? That's the atmosphere right now." Now, I'm no meteorologist and I don't play one on TV, but I do know enough to know that the above statement makes absolutely no sense what-so-ever! And the even more ridiculous thing about this scenario is that at the time of the said statement there were people in this area watching the news thinking, "Wow I better not go outside or I'll get pop all over me!" Although if the weather guy would have said the word beer instead of soda, you'd find most of The Cove looking up at the sky with their mouths open right about now...

Years ago, our neighbors were two barely 20-something news reporters. One worked for the local NBC station in town (a good gig) the other worked for the local CBS (3 viewers, tops). She got "promoted" to do the weather and since I was home with a new baby, begged me to watch each morning to see how she did. One morning as she fumbles through the weather (with no meterological training) she says "there's a front over here you'll see, but this sucker is STAGNANT!! It's not going anywhere!" I swear I peed myself that morning laughing. I couldn't agree more, do not trust these people.
