Save $40 on the La Crosse Technology WS-7049U Mahogany Wireless Weather Station with Remote Temperature Sensor

Lacrosse Technology Mahogany Weather Stationzcv-Standard

Okay so that's a mouthful to say, "La Crosse Technology WS-7049U Mahogany Wireless Weather Station with Remote Temperature Sensor", but it's a really great deal at $17.99 today on Woot! Normally priced at $59.99 you'll save $40 bucks and some change. We ordered one and will have a full review soon.

Let’s take a moment to remember “weather girls”, a now-extinct species of TV weatherperson. (No, we’re not talking about the band who did “It’s Raining Men.”) The idea behind this chauvinistic bit of typecasting was that since weather was the most boring segment of a newscast, you had to spice it up with a fabulous mini-skirted weatherbabe. Otherwise, you risked losing the attention of the Y-chromosomed portion of your viewing audience. Ultimately, what one might call the Willard Scott Doctrine firmly established that people want a mildly humorous, non-threatening, mild-mannered type calling out the highs and lows – and they’d better not be too good-looking. Take a look at the action news team near you: chances are the weatherperson is the homeliest of the bunch, especially if it happens to be a dude. It’s no coincidence that David Letterman got his start as a weatherguy.
