  • Way Cool

    I’m just commenting for the sake of commenting, but I do love the new weather section I built….

    • Astoundment

      Lise, I am utterly astounded at the amount of effort you & Chris have put into upgrading iBratt. It’ll take me weeks to get even a glimmer of a sense of it all. One thought here re the weather — love the solar picture idea, I’m wondering if we might get something similar for the current night sky, a sky chart perhaps?

  • Great New Weather Gizmo

    I just found a new weather toy I’m very fond of. It’s on the site and it may have been there all along with all the other stuff but I just never tried it before.
    Here’s the link:
    This toy allows you to drag the map whichever way you wish and zoom in or out. As you center the map (there’s a little star on the screen that stays constant and you move the map to make the town you want to see line up with star) a box in the upper right of the screen tells you the current temp and weather at the location with the time there and a capsule weather there. You want to know what is going on weatherwise in Beaver Dams, NY – just drag the map to center up that town and there it is: Beaver Dams, NY – 48 degrees and overcast.
    And it seems to do Mexico and Canada too. Here’s San Luis Potosi, Mexico: 81 with scattered clouds at 6:47 pm.
    A very fun and useful toy.
