Why Did I Watch Fourteen Hours Of The Weather Channel? I’m Not Sure.
One thing that became clear to me was that you watch a weather reporter out on the beach walking against gusts of wind for one of the same reasons you watch figure skating: the darkest and guiltiest part of your soul is waiting to see a wipeout. Not a dangerous wipeout; you don’t want the weather guy to get hurt. But blown over harmlessly so that his windbreaker comes partially unsnapped? Well, yes. — Linda Holmes, Monkey See : NPR
