Technology is cool but...

The Boy and I are watching NewCenter5, News You Can Count On, where we're digesting the local news. We hear this announcement that has us both in stitches. The earnest female reporter says "Now you can get severe weather alerts on your cell phone". Uh, can't you look out a window? Do we honestly need to be called on our cell phones to hear that it's snowing out? Are we that insulated from the real world that we've forgotten that weather happens OUTSIDE and in order to be prepared, it might be a good idea to take a peek out the front door every once in a while?

Man, that is so totally stupid. What say you, peeps?

I pay NO attention to weather people at all. They seldom get it right - or they're being redundant.


I just signed your Frappr map! and Michele sent me tonight.
