We interrupt this This Week In Crime to bring you a Special Severe Weather Advisory Edition of This Week In Weather

We will return to the previously scheduled web page in progress after this Special Severe Weather Advisory from the This Week in Weather Meteorological Action Center, equipped with the pulsating power of Doppler 9 Zillion Radar…

Well, it was another big week, This Week in Weather…and with the latest information now coming in on this month's Storm of the Century, we have the latest raw transcripts from the wind-ravaged landscape via our This Week in Weather Weather Watcher Scott Rabinowitz, who has reported to us LIVE via the web! These are unedited transcripts taken from the latest reports:

BRAD>> Scott, are you there?

SCOTT>> Yes.

BRAD>> Can you read what I'm writing?!

SCOTT>> Yes, I can read it just fine, Brad.

BRAD>> Good. Good to see that you're still in one piece, Scott...It's been an astounding week in weather this week as Hurricane Floyd has wreaked havoc on the helpless peoples of a dazed, dizzied and storm-battered nation...What are the conditions like where you are right now?

SCOTT>> They're fine.

BRAD>> The damage being caused by wind and rain must be terrifying at this hour in the wake of this monster Hell Storm from Hades!...

SCOTT>> Actually, it didn't turn out to be much of a storm at all...and it ended about three days ago...According to what I've seen on the news anwyay.

BRAD>> Are you able to stay safe where you are right now?

SCOTT>> Yes.

BRAD>> Where are you exactly?

SCOTT>> I'm at my desk, in my living room in Hollywood. Trying to get some work done. The De LeHoya fight is on in about an hour, so I don't want to miss it.

BRAD>> Hollywood, Florida? That was right smack dab in the midst of Floyd's path! Was it not?

SCOTT>> No, Hollywood, California. That's where I live. It's a beautiful day out, btw!

BRAD>> I'm sorry...the net connection seems to be breaking up, Scott…if you can bare with me...I'll try and hang onto the connection as long as I can!...How, uh...Scott, can read this?!

SCOTT>> Yes, I can read it fine. Like I could the last time you asked me...

BRAD>> Scott, how are you and the crew able to avoid the flying debris that can turn so quickly into deadly projectiles in the midst of the hurricane force winds accompanying this Mephistopholean Maelstrom?

SCOTT>> There is no flying debris, or hurricane force winds, Brad...And I don't have a crew... I'm just sitting here at my desk, acting like I'm a part of your fake Weather thingie.

BRAD>> Holy cow! I couldn't catch all of that, as the net connection is -- not suprisingly -- breaking up a bit, but it sounds absolutely terrifying, Scott!...Um, we'll remind participants at our Live Web Site who are following this LIVE chat that we are bringing you LIVE coverage of the latest developments in the unstoppable and unquenchable Storm of the Millenium that is currently ravaging a raped and prostrate nation...Um, sometimes it's difficult to keep our live reports going in these situations...

SCOTT>> Brad, I gotta go pee real quick before the fight comes on. Are we done?

BRAD>> ...Um...I'll tell you what, let's take a quick break right now and then we can return later with more breaking coverage via the net, with the latest reports of rain falling from the sky..and the foibles of our various reporters in the field being blown about in multi-colored rain soon as events warrant...Um, we'll return you now to your regularly scheduled web page currently in progress.


This has been a Special Severe Weather Advisory from This Week In Weather… We now return you to your regularly scheduled web page currently in progress.
