We had one of those nights last night.  The thunderstorms were small and localized and came nowhere near my house but they were in the “viewing area” of the TV stations and so the weathermen were whipped into a frenzy with excitement.

At one point there were two tornadoes on the ground at the same time and one of them had a stormchaser right there with a low-light TV camera in his car so there was live video.  The TV stations were lovin’ it.  He stayed with it till it got dark and then reported on the tornado by the light of lightning flashes.
