    Default When will someone die standing in a storm to report on it?

    I can't help but think the "news' people will one day go two far. Why they find it necessary to stand in such strong winds and rain, and rising water to dramatize a bad storm is something that puzzles me.

    I imagine there are those who think is 'they' can be here it must be okay for 'me' to stay.

    Just once I'd like to see the news say this storm is too strong for us to stand in to report on it.

    I'm sure some very secure cameras can be set up in many places to show the public how nasty the weather has gotten.

    It really is stupid.
    All done for dramatic effect.
    I've seen these people standing in ankle deep water when dry ground is 20 feet away.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    It's happened already John, though not "on camera" disseminated live. (Could media be too squeamish to go that far?)

    It would be nice were Trump to open his door at Maralago to take a peek and get his comb-over bashed by a wind-blown roof tile.

    I remember when Hurricane Donna (1960) passed right over our house west of Boston. The televison weathermen stood outside just like they do today to get filmed in the breeze and rain. It's been a staple for sixty years.

    Some day the whole crew will be killed, and this idiocracy will still not stop.

    No way to know, but I'm reasonably certain there are people who don't leave because the film crews are there :If it's safe enough for them, it's safe enough for us.

    How many people got hit by a stop sign while swimming in the sea?

    No one figured out that she's British and the Stop Sign was a American stop sign.

    Her's a hint it's not real but it's real funny

    These are news people. You think you could stop them? I gotta admit that I'm just idiot enough to go stand in the wind for a few minutes just to see if I could...then beat feet for shelter.
