In my posting WUground Make the Rounds ..
Posted By: ofieldstream at 11:04 AM EST on October 11, 2005 .. I stated that I would post when I find Wunderground being touted around. Well, today BarnDweller brought to my attention - in an email and on her blog about a siting she made of Wunderground on the Drudge Report; a rather well known news source: over 3.5 Billions view in the last year alone! I'd say that's pretty wide coverage.
It took me a while to find it - I was not aware that they change their news stories quite as rapidly as they do: BarnDweller told me they did. Well, she was quite right: about every 25 minutes or so. But I did find the story and here is a screen capture of the Headline. And when you click it ... well do it.
WUground ... makes ground - BIG TIME!!
Thank you Barn Dweller for the heads-up!!!
Another intersting note. Today, my wife and I attended a memorial service for the brother of a very dear friend of ours; she and her husband live in Windsor, CO. Her husband is a research meteorologist specializing in satellite imagery for NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) Office of Research and Applications (ORA) at Colorado State University.
I've visited his office and research facility. Let me just say this, if you're a 'weather geek', a walk through and 'listen in' on the conversations on-going minute-by-minute, would be a real 'natural high'! I don't consider myself a weather geek, but I really enjoyed the visit.. a LOT!
Anyway, he and I were talking and I brought up WUblogs in the conversation. He said the folks where he works - now these folks ARE Weather Geeks - to the max! - really like WU and several read the blogs.
So fellow WU's ... you just never know who's peaking over your shoulder. Eh?
--- Another ONE! ----
While looking around for information to make a comment on another blog ... I found this link to WU from the Nevada Dept. of Conservation & Natural Resources: Natural Heritage Program (bottom right).
It links to the weather for Carson City, NV ... and there are NO WUblogs there!! Oh, No! A rip in the WUblog-space-time-continuum!!
