Weather.gov Bookmarklet

    I’ve mentioned my go-to weather site before for USA-centric weather conditions. Here’s a simple bookmarklet I use all the time to not only fetch current local conditions, but also check up on those around the USA. Make sure you set the YOURZIPCODE value at the end to be able to quickly access your local weather. The prompt automatically highlights the zip code, so you can easily start typing as soon as you click the bookmarklet to fetch weather from anywhere else in the states by zip or city/state.

    🌤Weather — Drag this link to your Favorites Bar and edit the address before using or copy/paste the code below to a new bookmark, ensuring your local zip code is set.

    javascript:location%20=%20'https://forecast.weather.gov/zipcity.php?inputstring='+encodeURIComponent(prompt('Enter%20city%20or%20zip','YOURZIPCODE'));
    

    Happy springtime!

    If there’s one thing to bring happiness throughout this historic time, it’s the sunsets on our backyard deck.

    I enjoyed a sunny walk up to Bellevue Hill Park yesterday. The city was still.

    It would seem we can still stand to learn from Bill Gates’ TED Talk from 5 years ago covering Earth’s ill-preparedness for a pathogenic epidemic.

    Finally got around to adding dark mode to this blog. Thankfully, most of the legwork was already done by hadalin minus a few tweaks.

    Speaking of U.S. government websites, time.gov got an upgrade and has never looked better. I love the strong contrast between components and yes, it’s even responsive.

    It might not be pretty, but weather.gov is my go-to USA weather site. It has all the information I need, minus the ads/tracking.

    Our honeymoon in New Zealand could not have been more beautiful.

    My first time in Wales, upon the Sugar Loaf Mountain, in Brecon Beacons.
