Dear WeatherCat users who like their cars to be spick and span,

As someone who is constantly struggling to keep up all the things I need to do, it should be no surprise that I didn't manage to give my trusty wagon her fall wash and wax until this past Monday.  It is certainly the latest I've finished up with the cars.  I use a foaming sprayer as a pretreatment.  Somehow a car covered in soap suds reminds of me of how a dog looks utterly miserable when washed.  Here is Biquette from the front:



Here is the foam rolling off the tailgate:



It was cloudy on Monday and the weather was bad until Friday when the sun finally came out.  So I could finally photograph the fruits of my labors:



Here is the passenger side of the tailgate:



Here is the driver's side front:



Finally the driver's side view of the tailgate:



However late it was, Biquette did turn out very nicely!  [bounce]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

P.S.It was a good thing that I took those pictures when I did.  Today the Tule Fog from the central valley spilled over into the bay area.  Definitely no sun today to show off that shiny wax!

Dear Jenna and WeatherCat climate watchers,

Ellsworth Maine USA

November was:

Cooler than average (33.8F versus an average of 52.1F) !!!!!
Wetter than average (6.73 in. versus an average total of 0.19) !!!!!
Windier than average (a wind run of 761 miles versus an average of 582 miles) !!!!

WOW! You had a busy November after all!  I do hope all is well at the ol' homestead after all that "in your face" weather.

Anyone else have some WeatherCat observations on climate that they would like to share?

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Thank you all so much for the kind replies. I genuinely appreciate it. Right now my thinking is that I am just going to start over with WC and forget the past. In the past, I would download the data logger data from my VERY old Weather Monitor 2 and use a bunch of applescripts I wrote to massage and manipulate the data into useful tables. It seems that WC can do all of this internally. I am having a lot of fun exploring all of the features.

I've done an update to the DarkSky scripts today (8-Dec-2018) DS-forecast.php V1.05, DS-forecast-lang.php V1.04 that has the following additions:

1) a new current-conditions block can now be displayed (default is to display it).  DarkSky JSON has a current entry with conditions from a nearby station generally available.  The Icon, conditions, sunrise/set, distance from forecast point and overall summary are displayed in the block.  This is similar to the display with the ec-forecast.php script for Canadian forecasts.
 
2) if precipitation is forecast, the type of precip (rain, snow, sleet) also appears in the text forecast like the 'Chance of precipitation (rain) nn%'.

3) since DarkSky has a very limited set of icons specified (currently limited to clear-day, clear-night, rain, snow, sleet, wind, fog, cloudy, partly-cloudy-day, or partly-cloudy-night), I've added a routine to use the cloud-coverage (converted to octets) to change the clear-*, partly-cloudy-* specs to use SKC, FEW, SCT, BKN, OVC icons as appropriate.  Also, for wind icon, the same cloud-coverage is applied.
Even with these changes, DarkSky continues to use -night icons when talking about full-day forecasts sometimes.

Update is available from the scripts page (update both scripts) and the Template update tool page ( query for 08-Dec-2018, Base-World, *-plugin)

No unreported problems noted in the shipping version, Build 18C54.

Same with tvOS 12.1.1, iOS 12.1.1 and watchOS 5.1.2. Happy to report the watch EKG app shows a sinus rhythm.

Same here, referring to tvOS 12.1.1, iOS 12.1.1 and watchOS 5.1.2 (including sinus rhythm).

Planning to upgrade to Mojave next week. Maybe.
