How stupid do these weather man think we are? This is Minnesota and it gets really cold here. More crap to have to listen to so that some fools will tune in to their forecasts.

What a waste of time. It's cold, you could freeze. I believe I was taught this at 2. We are raising a nation of wimps. Now where's my helmet so I can go shovel the driveway?

I sure hope the alerts will be audible, because anyone that’s unable to figure out for themselves when it is ridiculously cold almost certainly won’t be capable of reading an alert. Wait…I just had an epiphany…maybe they should just drop "hope and change" stickers from the sky whenever it is dangerously cold, as that surely will attract the attention of those incapable of generating an independent thought.

If this is costing any money, someone should be fired.

just modify the existing wind chill advisory to include wind of 0 or more, instead of 5 or more, the public doesnt care, then we just have 1 warning , instead of multiple warnings that just confuse the public. some people in high positions have educated themselves into oblivion. just one warning, all it takes is to modify the 5 mph to 0mph

They can get sued if someone falls in the dark and wasn't warned it was going to be dark.
