This is a great idea - you can now get local weather forecasts via RSS. Feeds are available by selecting the country you live in and then drilling down into the specific location. We're in North America, but you can get weather for anywhere on the planet by RSS.
Weather and holidays always go hand and hand resulting in total chaos most of the time. This story is a bit different...
On any other Valentine's Day Tammy Ahlvin would love to relish in the pageantry. This year, she just wants it to be over.
Ahlvin bought Sweetheart Florists in Jackson in January. She worked in medical billing and wanted something more creative.
"Normally I like being around flowers," Ahlvin said Wednesday as she sifted through orders for flower arrangements, getting ready to go on another delivery. "This is chaos. ... I expected the lights to be on."
Generators chugged loudly from outside as she answered the phones and took more orders for Valentine's Day roses and carnations.
Seems like NOAA has finally gotten the word that sending pilots into hurricanes isn't the best idea when you can do it with a robot. NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) has decided to invest $3 million to use UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) for “the missions we call dirty, dull and dangerous.” These include predicting intensity of hurricanes, tracking Arctic ice melting, and flooding of the west coast of the U.S.
Get out—for at least 30 minutes. The positive impact warm, sunny weather can have on mental health and mood is real, according to new U-M research. Given the weather today in New England - we agree - sun and a little warmth from it can relieve the stress in your day.
Taking a trip to someplace warm in the middle of winter or lingering outside when spring arrives can be especially beneficial, with pleasant weather improving mood, memory and broadening cognitive style (openness to new information and creative thoughts) as time spent outside increased, researchers found. Hotter weather during the summer, however, lowered mood levels and the effect of pleasant weather was far less noticeable in other seasons.
"Being outside in pleasant weather really offers a way to re-set your mindset," says Matthew Keller, the post-doctoral researcher who led the psychology study. "Everyone thinks weather affects mood, but the biggest tests of this theory in 2000 found no relationship, so we went back and found there are two important variables: how much time you spend outside and what the season is. If you go from winter to spring and spend enough time outside, there's a noticeable change."
The findings, completed by a team that also included social psychology professors Barbara Frederickson and Oscar Ybarra, will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Psychological Science.
We recently came across this Gizmodo article - Solving Problems That Don't Exist. We tend to agree with some of the points - one being that most weather stations you can buy for you home don't connect wireless to the internet or your computer. Having to plug in a direct line or sync the weather station is a total hassle. You can record what happens - but isn't the weather in the present the best thing to know?
For us having a home weather station at Weather Snob means knowing how truly cold it is where we live instead of just going by the local weather, and also getting details on rain fall - etc. Though there are current "gadget" issues in the current crop of weather stations, they are still really great to have at your house for getting the true local picture.
We want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday from the entire staff here at Weather Snob. We'll have a full set of reviews when we return in the New Year. Thanks for all your support in 2007, and we know 2008 is going to be even bigger and better here at Weather Snob.
I always wanted one of these winter weather weapons. Instead, I had frozen mittens and cold hands from packing snowballs over and over. It'll cost you $8.95, to get sno-ballin this winter, but we think you'll like the results. We picked one up and so far we haven't lost any snow wars.
