I heard about Ivan...Yikes.
The thing that gripes me about the weather guys and gals, what ever their name, title, or credentials, is that they seem to like to panic people innecessarily. I know weather can be a major event, and that sometimes is so bad that people are hurt or killed. I just get tired of the way the weather people just take over and cause so much worry with folks. We have been having weather longer than we have had radar equipment. Why all the panic now!
