As of around 5AM this morning, it’s Spring!
We ended up with about 35 hours straight of rain. Not too shabby! Hopefully that replenished some of the snowpack that has been so low this year. It likely won’t be enough to stave off a dry summer, but every little bit helps.
Looks like we’re in for a few days of variable weather, maybe some flurries in the mix, should get some nice sunny breaks on the weekend. Time to get out into the garden!
Oh, and I’m very excited to announce that I made a minor breakthrough in my own learning of all things web-ish. And so within a few days you should be seeing automaticallly updating weather information (without need for a “refresh/reload”) on this site. Hooray!
UPDATE Sorry for the downtime folks, the wind this afternoon caused a 30min power outage and my internet hardware wasn’t happy when the lights came back on.
The Good News though!
In the Current Conditions box you should see a “Turn Off Live Updates” link. From now on, the entire page doesn’t have to refresh in order to get new weather data!! You can turn the updates off and on if you want but really there probably isn’t much reason to. They are not onerous on your computer and only update every 60 seconds anyway. It’s just a little more transparent than it was before.
For now it will only refresh the latest information in the topbox. The data updates from the server every 60 seconds. I will extend the auto-refreshing to other things later on.
Have a great night! Might get some snow this evening/tomorrow morning.
