I would like if they brought it back. Although I guess what they did is better than nothing. It might not be in their budget to do it I don't know. Although I would like it. I was hoping they would do it on the 10 year Katrina anniversery as a little memory thing or something but they obviously didn't. I would like if they did though.

Just thought I should point something out here I've noticed on TWC recently. During an LF, if the winds are calm, the text no longer says "Calm", but rather "N 0", presumably spelling out the word "no". The LDL, however, will still say "Calm". If there is a wind speed, the LF still reads "[number] mph" as before.

Example pics with the wind text circled:

Yeah I think that's odd why it's doing that, since 0 mph winds are usually variable.

Can someone confirm if Vocal Music played on the 4th? TWCAtlanta uploaded a video and it seems Weezer was sponsoring the LF graphics today? I don't know if it was real or dubbed?

I can confirm that TWC was playing vocal music. They only played Weezer's "Feels Like Summer" though.
