With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I have not really liked WxUnderground for a long time,

I always keep going back to TheWxChannel and also have that set on my cellphone to display on the Home Screen as a Widget.

so, what did they do to it? can't say, have not looked yet.
.... just now looked at it, and ???? and WTH

I got the following picture, then clicked on Forecast, and that was useless.
then clicked on Backup and it tried to reload again, and then I just deleted the Tab...

I am relegating that URL to the trash dump.

Use to use it all the time to get reports for my documentation on job sites. Now i use weather bug. It will show where the nearest lightning strikes are so i can alert my contractors to stop work.

Useless is the word I was looking for.

I started looking around in my database and discovered they have a huge database of weather stations.

What they did not say, is if you buy one of the weather stations from their website, is that data restricted to only their web community, or is it shared with all weather services?

Looking at the attached map shows a picture of the Wx Stations near me, nothing even close... Unless you call 20 miles close. I had been thinking of getting one of these weather reporting stations and logging into their network a year or so back.

Going to watch and see how they progress on their website.

haven't looked at different cellphone Wx apps in a year.... what with Mardonna getting sick last summer, that just about diverted me away from doing piddly things. Sort of feeling like doing odd things again, I hope that means I am recovering.

Looking deeper, I installed the WxUnderground app on my phone and it reported that my nearest reporting station is something like 10.2 miles by road. This is probably about 1/2 mile further than as the crow flies looking at this map.

Is this the one you are referring to?

Android version

The app I just downloaded is referring to an annual subscription to use it.
