Someday it will be an archaeological treasure trove under a parking lot or a forest.

Why the hell is this coming from The Weather Channel?

Their attempts to create non-weather content pisses me the hell off.

waterrockets: Why is this set now missing the dead homeless guy frozen in a flooded basement?

Even the Detroit slideshows are falling apart.


I haven't seen that one

I came here to say how that building in particular looked really nice and stuff, but never mind then. I see that Detroit has reclaimed it.

bangmaid: mooseyfate: Detroit. What a joke.

That's funny coming from someone who claims to work in "disaster restoration" in New Orleans. You obviously aren't very good at your job.

Yeah, I forgot, New Orleans is still completely underwater, we're bankrupt, and there's no hope in sight!!! Oh wait, the city is almost completely recovered and neighborhoods that were war-zones or worse before the storm are now pleasant communities. Oh, and small businesses are booming. Oh, and all the projects the company I used to work for are still operational, which was a huge chunk of New Orleans including Tulane University, Loyola University, University of New Orleans, Delgado CC, Xavier University, all of the Wal-Marts on the Gulf Coast, Audobon Aquarium, Audobon Zoo, nearly all of the major condo and luxury apartment buildings, every single hotel/motel our employees stayed in from top-to-bottom, all of the casinos, and really I could go on all day, but I think you get the point. Which is that you have no clue what you're talking about, not even in the slightest. But, hey, atleast you got someone to pay attention to you today!

The Weather Channel is losing ratings because people can get weather reports from their phones or the internet instead of watch a rotating regional report on tv. Only old people still watch it. So they are attempting to revitalize their market share with reality programming.

One of the many ways that the internet is killing tv.

You best not be bad-mouthing my beloved internet!
