But IMO, the downhill blasts aren't worth the mind-numbingly slow ascents.
Can't you ride the chair lift up?! Just try to avoid those towers on the way down! [headbang]

I haven't gotten the app yet. My guess is that it has to point at an IP address.
Now in my normal State of Confusion! [lol] The only app I'm talking about is WeatherCat. It appears you already have web space (spikeengineering), but perhaps that's not 'owned' by you and that page was simply a test? Beautiful dogs, BTW!

Sorry you are having WU trouble, senorwx. The last many issues people have had with their WU uploads have been eventually resolved on WU's end of things, not by anything any of us have done differently. At the moment, my WC uploads to WU are working fine. Sorry we don't have better info for you on this.

Years ago (and this is dating myself), I bought a decent road bike from Orinda Spoke and Pedal, and lifetime tuneups were included. It was the bike shop - everyone we knew supported them no matter where they lived. Prior to buying the bike, I'd just borrow one of my wife's because she had several road and mountain bikes. For a long period after I bought it, I was riding maybe 400+ miles a week. It was boring, slow transportation. LOL. The only part I'd enjoy was racing cars from stop signs or lights just to see how long I could hang with them, especially if it was a 25 MPH zone. I also tried mountain biking with the girls. It's slower. Ugh - b o r i n g. The downhill part is fun though, even when you wreck. But IMO, the downhill blasts aren't worth the mind-numbingly slow ascents.

...The two repairs have tamed the engine a bit, but it still should be in the neighborhood of 500 horsepower and about the same amount of torque.
There is no substitute for HP.

Welcome to WeatherCat zazzy. 

I took a peak at your website. It's good to have that work right out of the box. Many of us have desired something more than the simple website, so there is lots of help available on the WeatherCat forums for using a template, and some of us have even built something custom from the ground up.

Whatever you decide to do with a site, we are glad to have another WeatherCatter in the Orinda area. Also, love that fifth wheel.
I plan to do something custom, sooner or later. I'll probably start with one of the templates though. The fifth wheel is fun too. Fun for glamping and fun for the toys.

Dear senorwx, X-Air and WeatherCat data submission junkies,

WC is not feeding data to WU.

. . . .

Alas, Weather Underground has been performing poorly for over a year.  You will find a number of threads on this forum about it.  Here is just one although perhaps not the best:

http://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=2673.0

Weather Underground recently migrated to the Amazon cloud platform and apparently they have had software issues ever since.  I'm seeing that my webcam image is frequently not accepted although I just checked my station on Weather Underground and it looks okay at the moment.  I'm afraid we all have to put up with this mediocre service at the moment.  The consensus is to "wait it out" and hope they straighten it out soon on their end.

Cheers, Edouard

Dear zazzy, Blick, and WeatherCat fans of the outdoors,

Thanks for sharing the neat photos!

I wish I could have the free time to get out into the wilderness as you were able to with your wife and friend.

Great photos. Thanks for sharing. I used to bike quite a bit but appreciated your quote, "I'm simply aware of my limitations."

I used to bicycle quite a bit myself.  When I was in Seattle I would ride around lake Washington.  It was a great mix of scenery.  Alas the San Francisco Bay Area is getting very crowded and the mix of bikers is getting dangerous.  When you have everything from newcomers in marginal health trying to bike for exercise to alpha-males looking to break a speed record - being in the bike lane wasn't safe.  Add the reckless drivers and the pursuit looked more like a way to get killed than improve your health.  So I too have shifted to milder forms of exercise and indeed that has increased my limitations!

Thanks again for sharing!  :)

Cheers, Edouard

I just noticed that the newest center debris protector has slots for mating with 'fingers' molded into the bottom of the collector cone. That's a feature missing on my 2015 collector. Good addition as I've found my center protector knocked over practically eliminated from doing its job. [rolleyes2] Those 'fingers probably come on the newer 'turbo' collector. ??? Something to remember next time I need to replace anything. ThU32:-)

My data looks current. The web cam image is 36 hours old. [rolleyes2]

Frankly, I rarely visit my page there as it has been so troublesome and unreliable.

Notice they have changed to Disqus for messaging. But I don't have the time to read the TOS and probably will not appreciate their data collecting scheme. So I'll not be reading the "message" apparently waiting for me there nor elsewhere using Disqus... [rolleyes2]

WeatherCat General Discussion / WC not delivering to WU
« Last post by senorwx on Yesterday at 06:36:03 PM »
WC is not feeding data to WU. Other feeds, CWOP, PWS, etc. are just fine. I've deleted and created several new Station IDs at WU to correct the problem, to no avail. I've contacted their support team which has been very responsive, but no useful suggestions. The WU preference page stays as shown in the screen shot. I've been using WC with my Davis Vantage Pro 2 for decades and this is the first time I've had a problem with WU. I've noticed several forum threads from 2014 and 2017, but nothing recent that is useful. Anyone else with this problem? Thanks!

Hey, what a great idea. I even have one of those sitting around somewhere. Thanks Weatheraardvark.

I found that with the Davis debris screens, crud still got through, sometimes tiny sticks.  I went with a drain strainer instead and have had great results over the yearsl
