So here we sit in our home, waiting for the crock pot and rice cooker to complete dinner, listening to the thunder and the soothing sound of rain falling outside. The baby is fussing about his time spent on his tummy trying to figure out what he’s supposed to do much like an anti turtle who at this age thrives on his back. The sounds of another stormy weekend. I’m very pleased that we decided to wait another week before going camping.
The wife mentions that there’s a tornado warning going on in our area, and posts it to facebook for all those who are glued to their screens all day and yet still don’t get that there’s neet real time alerting for things in the real world on computers.
So I go to do what I always do… sit down to feed the baby and read some online material. And on the first page I find myself staring at something I consider amazing. The banner displayed on the page is a National Weather Service tornado warning for our area. Seems it’s not even a scam, clicking on it takes you http://alerts.weather.gov. And even more amazingly, they didn’t use a half naked model to attract hits on it!
Seriously, I’m rather pleased to see that something good comes from banner ads like this. The only other good banner ads i’ve ever seen of course would be the ones that help us pay for this site. I’ve seen worse use of taxpayer money out there.
