Now that's there's legitimate worries of a drought impacting the Bay Area, (and beyond), weather people are doing what they do best: showing mock concern. This is highly entertaining. Who can look and sound the most heartbroken?
Especially funny is when weather guesser already has broadcast the dreaded 5-day forecast which indicates there's no real rain on the horizon and acts as if his left testicle was just hit by a 90-mile-an-hour fastball, ah, the indignation!
Then, as if to add further personal outrage and concern that Mother Nature is inflicting some torture on us, said weatherman talks back to news anchor and says, like, "Uh, this is frightening, this is scary, we have issues here." Like they just lost a relative. Excuse, I'm laughing again.
I'm laughing because this is a weather specialty--especially broadcast well by male weather performers. The women have a better gauge on all this. They don't need to utilize the drama card. Look, we're in one of those dry periods but I'm not worried, why? Because we live next to an unlimited water source: the Pacific Ocean. Go get $10B from the feds and build a desalination plant, two while you're at it--one here and one in the Central Valley. Then we're all happy and then we don't have to watch a bunch of fake weather guys showing mock fake weather concern.
It's just that simple.
