    Evan,
    Thanks for the link.
    Looks like a good resource, but wish the map showed up using IE. I'll have to find a computer running Chrome to check it out.
    Here is another source for wind info that I find very helpful when fishing the sound.

    Evan, cool map! For those of us living in E Wa, wind is very fishing related. When I check a forecast, I am not usually looking to see if it will rain or snow or how hot or cold it will be, but what the wind will be doing.

    Can you load plug-ins on your system?
    Ok, I know, if someone's making you use IE they probably say "no plug-ins", but if you can:
    http://www.google.com/chromeframe

    Although I think it would only work if the site has a meta tag instructing IE to use the chrome plug-in as the rendering engine, so it may not help.

    What is your point...poking fun at Old Man and Mumbles is certainly not sporting for a man of your talents Flybill, you should have much sharper tounged opponents.

    Oh, and BITE ME!
