Weather people getting excited about gloom and doom

Postby Kit Kat » Wed Aug 11, 2010 6:19 pm

The weather people that I watch ( various ones ) all seem to get an adreanaline rush when bad weather is brewing. Sometimes when there is the threat of a hurricane it appears that they are almost giddy. It's not just the TV people, it's some of my facebook friends who post this junk.

You definitely have not been to the EasternUS Wx Forums. Haha! Fantastic weather forum btw!

Storms are really very interesting to track. The consequences of hurricanes, flooding or other storm damage can be horrific though. Its tough to say why people are so into it. The rush of trying to predict mother nature and the power behind it seems to be my thinking. Nobody wants or wishes for any loss of life or property!

For a true meteorologist there is a rush when severe weather occurs. The difference is with the small group that wants to see weather destruction without care who is involved.

I see that no one agreed with me. I guess that I need an attitude adjustment! :ashamed:

The meteorologists can get excited about hurricane Danielle. It is a fish storm and will cause no harm.
