As if I needed another reason to love The Weather Channel, they're letting you 'Escape the Election' with a brilliant programming idea. 

Apparently, The Weather Channel doesn't want anything to do with election coverage on Tuesday, November 8th. (And really, with all the channels that will be covering the results, can you blame them?)

TWC says it will have absolutely no election day coverage. In fact, beginning at 3pm on Tuesday, Nov. 8 and going until midnight, The Weather Channel is featuring 'Escape the Election,' a nine-hour 'chill marathon' of clouds, rainbows and autumn splendor...all set to smooth jazz.
