35. When we lost our electricity and the storm was still going on..
for hours upon hours, I can tell you, I missed the hype. Our battery powered radio could just not keep us updated the way the many choices of cable TV could.

It was miserable not to have the luxury of cable TV. Did we live? Yes, we did. Would I rather have had my cable TV hyping with a choice to change the channel if I wanted to? Yes.

I don't get what the big deal is about the hyping????? Can't people just change the channel and watch something else besides news channels?

And now I'm noticing some sort of jealousy over what state/states or disaster gets what amount of attention.
That is just plain silly, imho.
