The Weather and CSI

Thursday, May 1, 2008

One of the things I didn't do much of during tax season was watch network TV.  I just didn't have the time or patience for it, plus it all pretty much sucked considering the Writer's Strike.  Most things were reruns anyway.

So, tonight I was looking forward to watching a brand new episode of CSI, the first for me in a long, long time.  So much for the making plans....

Bad weather struck, and the entire hour was spent on weather warnings.  We got to see maybe a minute of the episode.  Okay, I guess I can understand the need for weather warnings, but one thing that was said kinda upset me a bit.

One of the storm chasers said something like this regarding the location of the storm system and tornado:  "there ain't nothing out here except oil leases and cows".   So, who are all these warnings and hour long discussions of storm paths, etc. for?  I really don't think the cows are in the barn watching TV worried about where the tornado is headed.

Most cows I know don't watch TV.  It's a cultural thing...

I want my CSI!!!!
