The other month we bought a weather radio as it was getting close to the time of year when things like tornadoes and thunderstorms are likely to occur. Friday evening we had some nasty weather in this part of Crackerland. Because the radio is set to pick up warnings for the entire area, it was going off every few minutes. We live in a townhouse and the radio is upstairs in the bedroom. When there is a weather alert it makes a warning tone and then the weather alert (watches, warnings, etc... the only thing we didn't have was a Winter Weather Advisory) and radio continues broadcasting until you hit the snooze button to turn it off. Well, even tho we took turns turning off the radio after each alert, we made many, many trips up the stairs as we were trying to watch TV in the living room. That is why I am calling it the Stair-Master.
If ever there was a device screaming out for a remote, this is it!!
