Anybody interested in raw Degree Days data? For 97 through 07 monthly
both heating and cooling, about 90,000 records. No biggie, anyone can
get the data here:
http://www.cpc.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/cdus/degree_days/

NOAA/ National Weather Service
Climate Prediction Center

It’s in 120 monthly pieces per set (heating & cooling) with headers
and footers which would make it a real pain to import to anything
useful. Sent a spider after it a couple years ago and still have the
templates so I added 2007, 2008 tonight.

Would need the name of a binary group to dump it in, if someone wants
it.
