Yes, of course. There is a bug which affects our digital television changeover in 2009. There would have to be one, wouldn't there? I was feeling rather complacent about ignoring the changeover to a digital-only platform. As digital cable customers, we don't have any analog sets running and so the changeover shouldn't affect us.
But no. We actually do have an analog set that has a built in antenna. It is D-cell battery powered and we use it during power failures after hurricanes. It's a cheap little black and white gem that sits in its box from one summer to the next unless it is needed.
I did some googling to see if there is a solution to our problem and did not discover one. "Get a radio" seems to be a common answer to getting storm information. Duuh, we have several battery powered radios. Watching a radio is cold comfort.
I want to watch the weather person endure it with us when the storm gets nasty. I want to see the maps so I can tell if our neighborhood will be on the strong or weak side of the storm. I want to see where the eyewall will strike.
I want my Mommie ...
