Is the National Weather Service obsolete?

Is AccuWeather better? I don’t mind the NWS hijacking the TV to tell me a severe thunderstorm is coming (and certainly didn’t mind the old air-raid sirens in the Midwest suggesting I’d rather not get killed); a reason I have WeatherBug (even though the experts say it’s spyware) is it will chirp a tornado warning long before Pennsylvania’s TV stations have a clue; I need lead time to run out to one side of the house to get to the basement. BTW I actually like extreme weather (ever since first seeing it in the Midwest) as long as I’ve taken cover. Don’t tease me like with that Irene nonsense; scare me indoors and I want to see a show in my windows. From RR.
