"The Weatherbug" -- Live, local weather updates on the Net! :-D
Yesterday's local newspaper had an article about the new interactive weather
station installed on the roof of Barkley Elementary School here in
Phoenixville. It's part of a national program that puts weather stations on
top of schools that give updates through the Internet. By downloading "The
Weatherbug" software, one can get live, real-time update on from the weather
station on top of the school, instant alerts if you're on the computer and a
severe weather warning comes up.
I just downloaded it (the URL is www.aws.com)and the program is waaaaaaaay
cool and VERY helpful for those of us who garden, etc. There's a ad strip at
the base of the weather info, but it's easily ignored. Once everything is
downloaded, the temperature as recorded on the school roof will appear at
the right left corner of your screen.
Enjoy -- I know it's going to make my life easier! :-D
