It really is not a history I am after at this time, though I will have a good look at the link you have provided, it does look interesting, thanks. My reasons for the %tags% are two-fold, of course one is so I can show the values for yesterday, the second reason is so I can make a little function to indicate a trend, i.e. UP, DOWN and STEADY on my web page.
With this early onset of spring/summer we are having there has already been one 'burn ban' in our township. The local Fire Chief looked at and is very much interested in adding my web data to his 'toolbox' of sources. Needless-to-say I wish to get everything finalized before summers gets here in full force.
