Watching the new weather program channel on Direct TV.
We remember when Jim Cantore had hair. Seriously.
But the Weather Channel lately isn't about weather. They have stupid shows like "prospectors" where they expect us to believe that some busty woman works her claim on the mountain in a red bustier. Or "Coast Guard Alaska" things like that. This new channel just has weather and their coverage is good.
My wife got in Friday and is leaving in the morning for Cincinnati. I spent most of today getting her car checked out, tires aligned and balanced, oil changed, and in cleaning the car up. I have never seen anyone in my life as bad as she is about letting her car get nasty, full of old coke bottles, tissues, McDonald's bags, that sort of thing. I wouldn't even get in the car until I cleaned it out.
There is a huge storm coming in tonight, and she will be driving in rain all day tomorrow. I asked her to wait one day and go Monday but she is too anxious to get up to the kids to wait. She's a grown woman and I can't make her do anything, but I think this is unwise.
Just as an aside, the new premier date for Survivor Man, the new series , is now Tuesday, January 7th, 2200 (10 pm) on Science Channel.
