My Weather Channel Software Loses Its Mind And...
« on: June 11, 2006, 10:05:46 pm »
...thinks I am in Alaska, and now I discover while it is 57 here in Rochester right now, it's 73 in Anchorage, Alaska (which seems to be the default location in their new software).  No justice, except for the highly amusing Dense Smoke Advisory that just came in because of wildfire smoke.  The locations in the warning area include:

Fairbanks, Fort Wainwright, Eielson Air Force Base, ESTER, North Pole, MOOSE CREEK, TWO RIVERS, FOX, Chatanika, Chena Hot Springs, and my favorite, SOURDOUGH CAMP.

Yeah... Sourdough Camp.

Shouldn't our site have a little box that tells us the current temperature in Riverton and Childress?    ;D

*Dies* Yes! Yes! (Today: Riverton, high of 83 F, isolated thunderstorms; Childress, high of 104 F, clear. Way too hot to wear black hats and stuff, if you ask me.)
Watch out. That poster has a low startle point.
