I have been doing or working with weather since I was 7 years old, now in my 40's and have done it both professionally and personally.

For those having issues please remember the following. God helps those who help themselves. You can not rely on or count on wunderground, the weather channel, nws or noaa to fix or run your station for you. It requires hands on active user input to keep it running. If you are not in it for the science then don't put it on wunderground. This is serious work carried out by serious people who love a particular thing, WEATHER! If you are learning about it in a classroom, learning in college or other trade school great, but if you got it for Christmas and you really don't care other than beyond it looks kewl maybe you shouldn't put your station into the network. I know that sounds harsh but someone has to be the bad guy. Our network loses credibility if hundreds and hundreds are signing up and not really wanting to be a member in the network. We have a few of those out here and i would give my right arm to shut them off at times. So before you sign up think to yourself is this something you got time to do? Are you willing to spend the time and money to keep it going for more than just your amusement? People are looking at that data and if they base a daily choice off the wrong data and something bad happens to them well guess what that's on you. It's why i strive to be the best weather station i can be. I have professional stuff done to keep it up. You don't have to be fancy just put a little time into it. There are help pages available to walk you thru how to do it. Get it right, keep it right and all will be right in the Weather World. Just because I'm the bad guy doesn't mean i don't like you.
