    Weather Alert Radio

    A friend just gifted me with a Midland WR120 that seems to fit the bill. It's fairly easy to program and sits inconspicuously behind the TV.....or conspicuously on a stand whenever my friend visits.

    It passed an ops check but I won't know if it'll earn its keep until bad weather comes along.

    I had another version of a weather radio. I finally turned it off til I know the weather is getting within reasonable distance. Some days it was going off 10-12 times a day with warnings that had nothing to with my location. I see that one will program by county which is helpful, but I wish they would get down to zip code size areas. I live near the boundaries of 3 different counties and the warnings get very distracting. ....I still hate that my phone has to receive amber alerts for places 100s of miles away.
    Sorry looks back.
    Worry looks around.
    Faith looks up.

        Oklahoma has tornado sirens. Until recently, however, when a warning came up for any part of the county then entire county's sirens went off. That changed late last to be more localized. Then they found that sometimes the siren often only gave someone about 2 minutes warning.

            Yep. When I tested it I got the every dog in the neighborhood howling.
