So, minor confession: I hate bad weather, so I'm prone to compulsively checking various weather sites for information on bad weather.
I take bad weather pretty seriously, and frankly I'm borderline phobic about the idea of a storm blowing down the house I'm in or a lightning strike destroying a computer that's on. That said...
What the heck, guys?
Also that said, dang but Weather.com overreacts a lot. I don't know about this particular storm system because I'm in the wrong part of the country, but it seems like all it takes is a single storm cloud for them to declare there's a severe weather threat for six states.
