As one who's spent quite a bit of time on the Texas Gulf Coast, it was always very annoying to see the Weather Channel crowd get excited and enthusiastic and yes, very happy, when a big Cat 4 or Cat 5 got into the Gulf. People get killed and billions of dollars of property damage often happens when these storms make landfall, but no matter the hot chics on the Weather Channel are out there on the tube with everything bouncing around (yes they do sell T&A on the Weather Channel), when conditions get bad.
But this year (thank goodness) has been a complete bust for 'Canes on the Gulf and the Atlantic in general, and as a result they are rather blue about that on the Weather Channel even though they are still trying to put on a "happy face" when any minor disturbance develops in the Caribbean or Gulf.

The Weather Channel is getting more annoying all the time. The non-weather related reality shows are the worst. And it seems they're slowing replacing all the talented people with the T&A you mention. I love to watch Mike Bettes and Dr. Forbes but I wonder how long it will be before they're phased out too.

They'll probably start naming tornadoes soon....

Yea, they took up to naming winter storms didn't they ? I don't think that idea had much traction as fortunately it gets little hype else where that I'm aware of ?

They get excited because it means big ratings. By the way, most weather enthusiasts get excited by big weather events, this is nothing new.
