Weather Channel graphics

    So insomnia's friend -- The Weather Channel -- has a new set of graphics in my town.
    They also come with sound effects. The forecast on the 8s tonight is for rain, so it sounds like rain in the background of the smooth jazz. Tomorrow is windy, so that forecast you could hear wind blowing.
    Is anyone else nerd enough to admit that they have noticed the changes or is this something that is just an experiment in my market?
    In other can't sleep news: American Gangster is on mininova, downloading it as I type.

    The only thing I look for on TWC are Steph's headlights. :eek:

    I noticed, too. I'm a weather junkie.

    Though Jen Carfagno is the real reason I tune in. ;)

    Saw on there the other day that they have a CD of their "smooth jazz" in stores now.

    I'm all over that. :) I hope they have a cut of the more dramatic "landfall music."

    I noticed the new gpx and sounds ... but I refuse to buy that god-awful CD.

    Couple of things...
    I'm glad to know that I'm not the only loser who keeps up with the Weather Channel
    I'd imagine the new graphics are for HD broadcasts.

    I don't have HD but get the new graphics.
