    Hi Steven,

    Just found this when I was ferreting around. “This day in Weather History”
    A Record of weather events in Minnesota and Wisconsin going back a ways.
    Has some good examples of catastrophic events way back when CO2 was under 350.

    Interesting to see this message coming back:

    ” Warning: http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov has multiple addresses; “

  11. _Jim says:

    Success using an alternative address:

    . . . . . http://205.167.25.171/

    The additional address was found using these people:

    http://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=a%3ancdc.noaa.gov&run=toolpage

    and entering “ncdc.noaa.gov” in the “DNS lookup” box.

    This is what comes back:

    Type . . Domain Name . . .IP Address . . . . . . TTL
    A . . . . . ncdc.noaa.gov . 205.167.25.171 . . . 60 min
    A . . . . . ncdc.noaa.gov . 205.167.25.172 . . . 60 min

    – – – – – – – – – – –

  12. _Jim says:

    And this works as well:

    . . . . . http://205.167.25.172/

    But, accesses via http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/ still do not still work (for me), and I am using “8.8.8.8” as my DNS server address (which is Google) per: https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

    So, it looks like there may be DNS name resolution problem that has cropped-up somewhere in resolving ncdc name to the actual IP address.
