I think it worked before my last upgrade.  I look at it a lot.  I sleep 
odd hours and never know if it is cool outside or warm so I look at it 
to see what the weather is doing.  The funny thing is, it works for the 
other thingy that shows the forecast for the next few days.  It's just 
the current temp and such that doesn't work.  I have tried other cities, 
local air base and a few other things excluding a stick of dynamite.  
May try that next tho.

Does that belong to kdeplasma-addons?  Google searches makes me think it 
does.  I thought about seeing if I can downgrade that one package and 
see if it works again.  Maybe if I configure it with the old package 
that will do something.
