Had to turn the heat on in the house with a frost warning last night. It ended up only reaching 3C but its crazy to think that a couple weeks ago it was hitting over 30C daily.

@ cwizard: I'm curious if the initial post was some sort of alluding to developments in Slackware-current, or if it was always to start a weather small-talk thread? :P

A friend lives in the S.F. Bay Area, where they had some very strange weather on Wednesday, 9 Sept. 2020.
He said that at 8:00 a.m. he noticed there was no sunlight filtering in through the closed blinds in his home office, so he went outside to find it was still as dark as it usually is just before sunrise. He went on to say the sky, in all directions, had a orange colored tint and it stayed that way all day, that is, it remained dark enough it was necessary to keep the lights on inside.
One of their local newspapers made this short video available on YouTube,

The Wall Street Journal web site has, at the moment, a slide show of various weather related photos of the S.F. Bay Area.
Edit in: The slide show has been replaced with a video,

Hi,

We have a lot of late rain lately. Measured 4 1/2 inches in 4 days. 2 inches in one short period. Little late for rain to help grain farmers unless one was to plant late beans or corn. Productions for most will be less/acre since needed rain should have been back in August/2020. Most corn is already developed but some green soybeans may be helped with this late rain.

With the derecho storms ravaging Iowa corn and beans then Illinois farmers will get a better profit for their harvested product even with low harvest numbers.

After the ferry home in yesterday's washout, North Texas in the morning brought 50°F temps (which I love). Usual averages are in the 90's easily. Texas weather is unique. As the saying goes: if you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait 5 minutes.

It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

After tinkering with it for a few minutes, I'm actually curious what other terminal style weather programs are available. Thanks for finding this! I also didn't get very far with that particular program. I was able to just telnet straight to that address and use the menus, but I think I may need a different remote service other than telnet. It doesn't pull up any local cities either, just main cities for me.

Interesting. I haven't used telnet since my Windows 3.1 days. Can't access any weather for my area with this but it was fun trying

I've seen pics of that. Apparently it's due to the wildfires.
