We tuned in just in time for the weather. This is a fairly exciting time for weather people: the Levanter, which has been blasting us for over a week now, offers all sorts of possibilities for commentaries, the inclusion of
- Temperature: 15° (high), 12° (low)
- Humidity: 77%
- Visibility: 9 km, mostly cloudy
- Wind: E 72 km/h
- Sunrise: 8:12 am, Sunset:7:00 pm
- Barometer: 0 mb and falling.
This was last night's weather report: "Tomorrow it will be grey and windy."
I can't argue with its succinctness and I suppose that in a world of excessive verbosity I should be lauding and/or applauding this meteorologist's economy of words but, frankly, I am at a loss as to why she just didn't show the above photo - a photo, I might add, that they could have used for the last 10 nights - in lieu of a report. Why bother with words at all? Surely a picture is worth a thousand words. Or at the very least seven, i.e., "tomorrow it will be grey and windy".
