With the bombardment we get of these ads from every other corner of our lives these days it is my opinion that they are out of place here. It doesn't matter which party you are for although the ads stating "A Clear Choice for Women" are obviously party specific. If the owner of this site wishes to make it a political bill board of his own choosing that is up to him, the weather is available many other places. Mix the political bull with our weather and I will find my weather else where. Sad

To bad, this has been such a great site for a long time . . .

We are not affiliated with either party and have little control over which political ads are displayed with our current program. This is not a political bill board and once the election is over I'm sure those particular ads that you describe will be gone. We have been running ads on this site for 6 years with very little issues or complaints. My apologies that you were offended.

Chris, Sorry if I came down hard on you. I clicked on the AdChoices icon in the ad boxes and now understand that you have no control over what ads are displayed each time someone visits this site. I feel that Google is playing games. They state that the ads one sees are based on your browser activity stored in a cookie. They are even nice enough to provide an ad manager so you can edit the types of ads displayed. No where can you eliminate political content from their ads. When I wrote my complaint above I was being flooded with that particular ad for one of the presidential candidates, often having the same ad more than once on the same page. No other political ads were/have been displayed for other candidates or parties. Google claims ads are selected on browser activity yet I am the last person in the world to look at political content on the web. Today I have been viewing several pages here looking to see if that or a similar ad showed up and there has been nothing political in any of the ads that I know of. I do not know if Googles ad system can be tampered with so political ads can be promoted or what the situation is but the party specific ads seem to be gone for now. This has been a favorite weather site of mine for a long time and will continue to be so. Keep up the good work and thanks for having this site available for us.

Thanks Blair and no problem. I did notice a few ads that seemed to be favored for one party and was able to filter them out. Hopefully that will be the end of them for now unless new ones are entered into the program. My guess is since the election is drawing near more political ads are appearing. Feel free to let me know of any in the future and I will submit them into the filter. Thanks for the reply and have a great day! Very Happy

Thanks for the filtering Chris, it seems to be working well. Now . . . can you do anything about this COLD weather? I have been here in south Fort Myers since 1983 and have learned to love the heat and this past summer didn't turn the AC on once. If you could set the thermostat about 15º warmer it would be a big help. Smile

Thank God Sandy passed us by, we have been lucky again so far this year. I live in a small mobile home close to the beach (read as "on coastal flood plane in tin shoe box") and don't wish these storms on anybody but if there is a way we can keep dodging the bullet I'm all for it.

Thanks again for the filtering and a great site. I love being out doors down here for any excuse and am getting ready to put together a fishing kayak (back ordered for about two months now) and I do a lot of wildlife photography so being able to get forecasts only a few miles from home is a great help. Thanks for being here.

Blair

Hi Blair,

Thanks again and I'm glad the filter that was put into action resolved the issue for now. You can give me a heads up anytime if you notice anything unusual.

I was raised all my life in Southwest Florida and the summer time heat is something that takes years of getting used to. It really doesn't bother me much at all anymore and I sometimes welcome it after a cold winter. Anything below 65 is considered cold to me! Laughing Heck, during the summer, I fish in long sleeves and long pants for UV protection (light gear of course). But I'd rather have a few drops of sweat than a nasty sunburn that lingers for 3 days.

It's great to get outdoors and with that new kayak you mentioned, you're going to be able to get into some skinny water which should provide great fishing. One of these days I'm eventually going to get one.

Lets hope it warms up a bit. That 65 degree threshold I mentioned earlier is getting close. Smile

Hahaha, I haven't lived here long enough yet Chris, the summer afternoon full sun, when the heat index is about 500º and the sea breeze has yet to kick in are still a bit much for me. I grew up in New England where I thought 85º was torture. Needless to say I don't miss the snow and ice or the salt on the roads rotting out my cars.

I fished a lot of both fresh and salt water up north and haven't done any fishing since I moved down here. Keeping a boat in the water is a whole different ball game down here and work and life just didn't give me time or money for it. Early this summer I decided that I had been off the water to long, it just wasn't natural and seafood is way to expensive for my budget so I started researching a fishing kayak. I figured a couple weeks of research and I could be on the water fishing. LOL, more then two months of research later and almost giving up on it I was able to finally pulled the trigger on it the middle of September and wrote the check. It has been at a stand still since then due to back orders and date of delivery still unknown. It's getting to the point where time has to be on my side eventually. Very Happy

I live near Bunche Beach so I have picked up the county parking sticker. When I saw all the other places I can park, when I got my fishing license I got the combo fresh and salt water with snook permit and have been piecing together tackle for both. It gets to windy on the bay I will head inland. We are blessed to live where we do and this is going to be fun!

Yup, 65º is plenty cool enough, 70º is even better. Sweaters and sweat pants are a pain, shorts and tee shirts just about right. Very Happy

Blair
