Scottsworld Other than changing the links menu from the side to the top there was not any real major changes. I just updated both my ancestory database and the Henry Woodward Database on the Genealogy pages on 12-30-2020. I was not sure when I had last done it and Roy Arthur Kelly II my cousin had sent me updates on his family.
WordPress made some changes and now automatically updates the plugins. Which is much appreciated, before I was weekly updating plugins more than I was actually blogging which was getting annoying. I logged in today and ran an SEO update and update my theam, which was the first time I’ve logged in to the WordPress app on my website in a couple months now.

As part of Scottsworld also got the menu change and actually happened on the weather pages first. Forgot both also got some mobile coding so they work well on mobile devices, not that you will see the code and other than it works not notice it either. One change I am not happy about is the National Weather Service made major changes to their radar page, there are no more regional pages so I had to remove the radar graphic from the weather page because it was broken.. This is the new NWS Radar page and this is the NWS Tutorial on the new Radar page..
BTW I am officially a NWS weather spotter now. We are to report things like; tornadoes, storm damage, flooding, less than 1 mile visibility, large amounts of rain, hail and Snow. NWS SKYWARN Storm Spotter Program
Not that we get a lot of those things in Phoenix or even a big monsoon storm in the last couple years. We are down nearly 4 inches of rain for the year and the only real weather news was it was hot for a long time and we broke several heat related records. We were still hitting 100’s and 90’s into October and it did not drop below 80 until well into December. Then it went from 90 to 60’s in one week. I had to put a coat on to put up Christmas decorations because I was cold at 60.. I grew up in Colorado so I know what real cold feels like.
I am also a CoCoRaHS Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow member, I have an official CoCoRaHS Rain Guage mounted on my weather station and the app on my phone to report any type of moisture we receive. Mostly this year I have cleaned dust and dead bugs out of the rain gauge. Blury thing in the corner is my finger.. Have trouble holding the phone and taking photos..
