Hey Evan,

What happened to the weather report?

BTW , the weather report and extended report are both MIA, FWIW. WTF?

IMHO this is bizarre. YMMV.

Just an FYI.

I've noticed that in order to access the extended Gunks.com weather forecast, I have to disable my popup killer. Could this be your problem?

Friday night nothing was working (I have my pop-up killer disabled for gunks.com). I had to resort to 1-800-SAM-SMUM on Saturday morning (made an excellent call and went back to bed as a result) - definitely my #1 choice in weather forecasting.

The source and format for the weather posted on the site has changed. I was getting if from Cornell, but late last week, they just dropped it. I need to re-write the script that pulls the weather, this time, from the national weather service. This is the source I'm using:

NOAA Weather Source

Hopefully can get this done some time this week.

To satisfy the weather junkies In the interim, how about having the weather link on the home page open the noaa link above in a new window?

It easier (for me) to modify the script than to modify the database.

Here's the latest weather report I got from the ny times:

Rain. Heavy at times. Followed by periods of precipitation.

Thursday : Lingering showers throughout the day. Chance of rain 800
percent.

Friday : Moist. Damp. Sodden.

Saturday : Rainish. Showery. Precipitacious.

Sunday : Light rain followed by heavy rain followed by pouring.

Monday : Unseasonably rainy in the morning. Uncharitably rainy in the
afternoon. Unconscionably rainy in the evening.

Tuesday : Endless showers broken up by occasional flooding.

Wednesday : Remember "Waterworld"? Like that, only with more rain.

Thursday : Not sunny. The opposite of sunny. Just forget about sunny,
O.K.?

Friday : Clearing just long enough for you to make weekend plans.
Followed by obscene amounts of rain.

Saturday : Take a wild guess.

Sunday : Incessant, spirit-crushing rain. The kind of rain that makes it
futile to get out of bed in the morning. The kind of rain that seems as
if it will never end. And guess what? It never will. Ever. Do you
understand?

Monday : Please go away.

Tuesday : Ample, brilliant sunshine throughout the day. Wait — did I say
sunshine? I meant rain. Really hard rain.

I almost embarrassed myself on the subway laughing out loud at that when I read it.

Then I remembered how much water I got in my basement yesterday (twice).

Will you just be extracting the text Evan, like we had before, or will we get the radar too (I like to see pictures of my weather).
