Severe Weather

OK, I am sure people are having a tough time in Texas today, but I am sick of the folks on the Weather Channel talking about how 4.5 or 5 inches of rain in a 24-hour period is the mark of a really bad tropical storm.

The last time I was caught in a tropical storm, there were 9 inches of rain in about 18 hours. That is a lot of rain.

And the funny thing is, it wasn't the end of the world - or even the end of South Florida.

I wish they would just stop with the hysteria, but I guess they make too much money.
