Default not sober rant time, Flash Flood floda

"he National weather serivce" according to the phone answererrr.
Flat ass Fla, no mountains miles away, no ffn flash flood ever. Hell we need a GD hurricane to cause flooding here in Jax. But they have to cover up the screen with their dumb warning bar and dumb littel map.

"not sober rant"... possibly means drunken drivel? about a flood warning where a flood is really unlikeley, yet the flood warning interrupted whatever was being watched on the tv?

close.
bottom "bar" warning and a square, showing radar of the area". Lakers vs Rockets game 2 Western Conf. semi's. And a normal thunderstorm in an area that NEVER flash floods.

Flash floods are very deadly in geographies with mountains. A rain storm many miles away can produce a dangerous torrent of water surprising people who based on their observance of the surroundings may have no idea that it was raining anywhere.

No of that happens in Florida. So the warnings are pretty useless for those watching TV at home.

Puddle in the streets cause dumasses to drive their cars into them to see how deep they can get before drowning out the motors or float the car for s little while and then sink

"Flood" is in the eyes of the flooded. A flash flood for mountain folks is a wall of water that washes away everything. A flash flood in Florida is a storm drain that plugs up and puts 4" of water in your house.
Storm surge is a whole other thing and that might give your second floor a good scrubbing if you are in a preFIRM house at the beach.

none of that came remotely close to happening last night in N. Florida.

If I didn't wear my foil hat so often I'd probably think that I should watch T.V for warnings about safety and pandemi's and such.
