It’s a good news bad news story…

The Bad News is that the forecast on the frontpage here is still offline, EnvCan really threw me a curveball so I’m having to do some serious re-coding to get it to work again.

The Good News is that I’ve changed slightly how I create movies from the webcam, resulting in much improved videos at YouTube. (www.youtube.com/alberniweather).

The Other good news is that the forecast is calling for 16 or 17 degrees on Saturday!! Growing up, I always looked for the first day that the news guy said it might hit 20 degrees… then I knew for sure that summer was coming and school would be over soon!
