Unfortunately over time, the folks at the Weather Channel have moved away from the "all weather all the time" concept that I dearly loved, to a "weather-tainment" paradigm. Don't get me wrong; I do not 'hate' this new concept. I do like watching Prospectors and still don't mind experiencing some of the slicked-up weather tech. It's all the other programs they have that just irritate me.
The other day my wife introduced me to a new channel on Dish called WeatherNation. WOW! No odd programs that only have a tentative relationship to weather. Definitely a more "all the weather all the time" programming concept. They may have won a convert here; I like it.
