I never thought the day would come when I would miss CNN, Fox News, and even The Weather Channel, but that day has come.
When I opened my paper this morning this article caught my eye.
6 Hurt As Tornado Damages Alabama Wal-Mart
I had talked to Andrew Friday morning and he never mentioned a tornado! He attends Troy University in Troy, Alabama, lives in Troy, Alabama, and is in the middle of the ‘Sound of The South’ band camp in Troy, Alabama at this moment. I would think a tornado going through town would be an important piece of information to mention to your mother. Don’t you?
Since H got his new smart TV 3 months ago and we dropped our local cable provider to hook up to Direct TV with a gazillion channels to choose from, you would think we would be well informed of the latest news events.
The problem is we aren’t as smart as that TV is. H had all those news and weather channels memorized with our local cable provider. Now with so much to choose from he gets interested in a movie and forgets he is searching for news.
Every channel has a three number code instead of the usual two, so that adds to the confusion of memorizing the numbers.
I can’t blame it all on him though. I can’t find HGTV or TCM when I’m searching and have to rely on the paper guide we have.
Jessie and Davey tried to teach us how to record programs and save them while they were here. You noticed that word ‘tried’ up there didn’t you? I guess if it’s not playing at the time we sit down we won’t be watching.
I did figure out how to get to Netflix last week. Now I can finish watching Grey’s Anatomy – when I find time.
There is so much content to choose from and so little time. Missing the news programs was not what I expected to happen.
Now I must go send multiple texts to my son to get some tornado information. He could have been swept away with the storm and ended up in OZ for all I know.
