Default Another COMPLETELY USELESS warning issued

Are they kidding me!!?? There was some cloud buildup in the middle of lake ontario, nothing even showing on radar near the shore, not moving to the shore (moving east), and all we had was rain.

I JUST FOUND OUT I WAS UNDER A FREEKING STORM WARNING TODAY!

Do these people have ANY idea of the local conditions before a warning is issued!? I do apologize as I know I sound like a broken record about this. But enough is enough already.

Why not just release a warning at 6am, EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR, end it at 5:59:59am the next day, and that will cover their butts for the year. Nobody will be able to say they didn't know about impending danger, because then EC can say "well, there was a warning issued for it"
