There was a thread about this a while back. Here's another one. What is the deal with this "National Weather Service" ("NWS")? There was a huge storm that passed through middle Tennessee last night. Tornadoes etc. When the NWS cuts into the TV programming, it's as if there is some guy (not from here) in a cave, broadcasting from a crystal radio. Horrible hum & static, and the TV screen shows little or no useful info. Gets stuck there for some long time. Attempting to change channels doesn't work. Maybe sort of like what TV was like in 1939. Is this just in TN, or everywhere? Some sort of budget cut stuff? Maybe other areas of gov't should be cut $$-wise, and this one boosted. Lame beyond belief.
