Cloudy with a chance of disaster: listen to the entire Storm Stories series from The Weather Channel.

SciFi/Fantasy and Classics to History, Adventure and Memoirs to Social Commentary—I love and listen to it all!
Weather Channel snippets can be a nice break from listening to other more serious or involved audiobooks. This one, however, rankled. Everything was geared towards "that one special animal" that people had. Other animals beware. 'Cause if ya don't survive? Nobody's paying attention. This is 1.5 stars rounded up.
I can only listen to these, as I said, when I have "audio-fatigue." But .95 and less-than-21-minutes of listening time can sometimes be a motivator for me. What can I say? I'm scatterbrained that way.
Urgent, dramatic, anchorman
Why even mention that people have cats or other dogs if one finds that, ultimately, they don't survive, aren't reunited with their families, and that families really don't give a rat's patoot as long as they get their "favorites" back? Very disheartening. Plus, punctuating (for what? drama?) the soundtrack with a "Woof!" or a "Meow!" causes the giggles. My favorite was, "Some animals didn't want to be caught: 'Meow.'"
Note: Anything having to do with animals automatically makes me feel guilty about giving a one-star rating. That's my disclosure.And how can I begrudge a .95 price tag and 21 minutes of my life? Well, I kind of do with this one. I could've been listening to... anything else...
