the weather channel

Originally PUBLISHED June 13, 2006

I have the weather channel playing on my television now, mainly so I can see the local radar and learn what's going on with Alberto's bad self. Rain has been falling in a steady drizzle for almost two hours now, and there's a lot more where that came from, at least according to the Weather Channel.

We NEED the rain here.

And I NEED my weather channel. We never had that glitzy crap when I was a boy, so we had to do forecasting the old fashioned way, just as Recondo 32 says today when he's feeling philosophical.

"We had a Weather Channel. It was called The Fuckin' Window! (pronounced "winder" by true red-necks) You looked outside, and if you saw rain, you wore a raincoat. If it was bright and sunny, you didn't want to go outside at all. Too got-dam HOT!"

Technology ain't got a damn thing on old red-necks.
