Thanks for this jsntrenkler. I'm going to try that. Doing IT Consulting, I've had to clean up _way_ too many computers that had weatherbug on them to ever knowingly put that on something I own. If you want to raise my blood pressure just mention that name (among others). Also, why install an app and take up what little app memory that I have left with a memory hog when this will do the job fine.

Up till now I was just using a bookmark to search google with the terms "weather" and <myzipcode>. That was fast, free, and didn't load up yet another performance-sapping program.
