One of the weird things about watching television weathercasts is when they project a storm's movement; you know the sort of thing: "The storm will reach Grand Prairie at 10:27, then Duncanville at 10:35..." and so on.
What's hilarious is how often the towns named aren't any we've ever heard of. Someone told me it was because the weatherpeople still use old railroad maps, which still show all the teeny tiny towns along the rail line. Towns such as Gribble, which is up around Farmer's Branch in Dallas county. And Bransford, which was in the general area of Colleyville (which has a school named for that town).
Is this unique to Texas? Or do y'all's weathercasters also warn defunct towns about approaching storms?
