From: Weather Alert
Subject: Alert DC Severe Weather
Notice Date: Thu, 16 Nov 2006 08:24:34 -0500A

[**severe weather/flood**] watch has been issued for the DC area through [**hh:mm am/pm**]. Prepare for this potentially dangerous situation by removing possessions from [**outside/flood prone areas**] and by informing your friends, family and co-workers of this alert.

Response 1:

This seems pretty vague, but I think the bottom line is we should panic.

Gotta love the National Weather Service ;-)

Response 2:

Oh dearness, that's too funny. Panic!

Response 3:

Really, I think this means that whoever sent out the email doesn't know how to use their system...someone forgot to add the type of [severe weather], [hours] and [area] to the email.

I think it's more like, gotta love whoever's in charge of our emergency systems here in DC!

Response 4:

Exactly! There are no facts provided, but make sure to tell all of your family, friends, and co-workers to PANIC. hehehe...

    Evidently a tornado watch has been issued here, scheduled to end at 6pm.

    I like "tornado watch" as a term, because if there is indeed a tornado, the last thing I'm going to do is watch.

    Thanks for the update i-66. Do you ever think about the fact that the windows they give us with the weather (ie your house MIGHT be destroyed by a tornado within the next 24 hours) would never work for any other industry... imagine if Fresh Direct told you they'd be delivering your food between 8am-6pm, and you have to just hang out inside all day...

    The cable company. They've narrowed their windows over the past few years, but "we'll be arriving sometime between 12 and 5" was unacceptable by my standards while status quo for theirs.
