@g-man Did something happen to the 2nd sheet you had with WU integration? I'm only seeing the simple sheet attached now.

@srmorris2 I think there is an issue with forum settings not showing this correctly. I'm not currently at home, so I will check it later.

Also, give me a few days. I re did the log to use Darksky API instead of weather underground. Weather underground shut down it's API keys as part of IBM and the weather channel taking over. I'm still testing the new functions (alpha release). I've been on family vacation and not at home.

I did an update to the Log. Read the top post for the new features using DarkSky instead of Weather Underground

I know a few members were waiting on this. @Pete1313 @ksturfguy @TonyC

The Climate tab has me drooling. I have two soil test envelopes sitting on my counter, the Soil Deficit tab has me wanting to send one to the lab.

I'm intrigued by the Alexa integration, do share more. I too am a Smart Home (OpenHAB) Junkie, and would rip every switch out of my house if I could. Maybe a reminder driven off of these calculations for applications and other Tasks. I also have a To Do tab I'm using, might need to get that bad boy popping up on my mobile using MQTT or Google reminders. There are so many possibilities here.

Thanks for sharing.

Great stuff!

Bug report:

Yesterday Indy had more than in inch of rain (yes in January). When I looked at my log, I noticed no precipitation data was reported. The value was reported for previous days.

Upon investigation, the API call: precipAccumulation = The amount of snowfall accumulation, in inches. (If no snowfall, this property will not be defined.) Very useful, right? They dont seem to have an object for just rain. I will email them to see if there is a work around.

I discovered this the hard way too. I could not find a total rainfall amount being reported anywhere. Please do share what they reply with.

I got a response back:
Rain data is provided under the `precipIntensity` field. This value provides the rate of hourly rainfall. So you may either add up the 24 hourly values in the `hourly` block, or multiply the value in the `daily` block by 24.
I need to try it.

I'm testing it here too.
