Well, the Weather Underground, at wunderground.com, has a feature called the WunderMap, which plots temperature, wind speed, direction, and conditions for tons of weather stations across the county. You’d be surprised to see exactly how many weather stations are in the Greater Rochester area! Take a look, at www.wunderground.com/wundermap.

This week’s tech tip comes from a request from Shavonna Hinton, a senior at Thomas… She was in the middle of applying for a scholarship which offered its application in the very popular PDF file format. Rather than printing it and hand-writing it, she decided she would try to format and type it on the computer, to make it neater. There was only one problem… she wasn’t sure how to edit PDF documents! Luckily for her, there’s a few different solutions. One of the simplest is PDFEscape.com, which lets you fill in PDF forms, as well as annotate, highlight, and do other simple edits to PDF documents. You can also try Foxit Editor (free version), or Google around for more!
