Can't Bear To Watch The Election? The Weather Channel Will Offer An Escape

Tune out the madness with stunning nature footage.

The Weather Channel
For people who are tired of the U.S. election, the Weather Channel will begin sharing images, such as this one, on Tuesday afternoon.

Sick of the election? Can’t bear to watch what happens Tuesday? 

The Weather Channel is here to help. For nine hours, the cable channel will broadcast “the most beautiful, awe-inspiring and calming weather video and scenery ever caught on tape.”

It could be just what you need to sink into a state of sweet bliss, helping to forget all about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump... at least until you change the channel.

The network said:

“This election night, as other networks go low, The Weather Channel goes high... to the sky that is. Clouds! Rainbows! Autumn Splendor! And...yes...smooth jazz! Weather will have it all in a 9-hour chill marathon guaranteed to evoke tranquility and set your soul at ease.”

A Weather Channel spokesperson told USA Today that the network will interrupt the calming footage if severe weather strikes somewhere in the country. Otherwise, election-free coverage begins at 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday, and runs until midnight.

If the election is not over by then, you’ll probably need more than the Weather Channel to get you through whatever happens next.
