What in the motherfuck is motherfucking wrong with these motherfucking idiotfucks?
What in the fuck is wrong with these fucking idiots? Local "weathercasters" will spend 5 minutes reading the temperatures in every nearby town even when they're identical (Spokane is 46, Deer Park is 46, Cheney is 45, Medical Lake is 47...) but totally ignore the other trivial bits of weather, such as the bits that can KILL YOU.
KXLY radio is the worst of the worst of the worst of the worst.
This morning we have 46 degrees, as part of a typical Chinook pattern which includes 30 to 45 mph winds. All sorts of stuff is blowing around; presumably some tree branches and powerlines are down.
Their newscaster just now said "With these wonderfully warm temperatures, bicyclists will be out and about. Be careful and watch for bikes; there's still ice on the roads in some places."
No, you fucking idiot. Bicyclists will not be out and about with a 40 mph wind. If they are, they'll be falling down for a fucking different reason, not the fucking ice.
Aaaggghhh! The traffic reporter just called in with a report of a powerline down, and still NO FUCKING MENTION OF FUCKING WHY
THE FUCKING POWERLINE IS FUCKING DOWN.
Must be the wonderful tropical fucking temperature
that's bringing down the fucking trees and fucking powerlines, you monstrous format-bound fuckhead. Just think, if the fucking temperature had been a frigid 45 instead of a tropical 46, we wouldn't have any fucking problems at all.

Later: Hmm. After re-reading the above, looks like I probably need to bite a lawn mower.
Also later: This is a perfect illustration of why wind "power" is such a fantastically stupid idea. First time this winter I've been able to turn down my electric baseboard heaters. First day I've used less electricity than normal.
Wind "power" gives you more
electricity than usual at the exact times when you need less
electricity than usual.
