My local station made it a split screen report much like the Twitter feed showed. When tornadoes are popping around the homestead I get curious enough not to mine the intrusion. Besides, our local meteorologist was plum tuckered out long before the back nine.
I fall into the group of I'd like to know regardless of what's currently on TV. Weather during these events is way more important to me. I might have a different opinion if I was in an area that didn't have bad weather.
