It's TEAM COVERAGE time!
Hey, time to put on the station-logo slickers and maroon through Kentfield asking roofers, "How rough is it?" ..."Yeah, dude, it's wet up here."
Must be the rain.
This time of year that tends to happen. Next thing you know there's a power outage and traffic tends to build up on the Bay Bridge and before you know it, there's pile-ups. I think it's the rain.
Of course here all hell breaks loose. TV people love live shots from Marin. Radio goes further bonkers. Every fender-bender on 880 is ground-breaking. Weather people love this. Doppler radar is orgasmic. Howling winds. OMG!
There is an upside to the over-bloated weather coverage: no impending drought stories with the usual 100 shots of the empty reservoir in San Jose.
A Bay constant this time of the year: Black Friday live shots; more team coverage. Then when it rains for a few days, more team coverage. Then the usual pile-up of live shots at Blue Canyon in the Sierra: damn, it's snowing. Quick, get a camera on the guy pissed off because he can't get to Tahoe because he forgot to bring chains. Dang! Next thing you know a small craft advisory will be posted.
Chill. Lay down on your Sleeptrain mattress and listen to my radio show.
