Quite valid, I was not implying that the problem existed AT flood, just
that the products were getting to flood late. This could be either, as you
suggested, a slow route between flood and wunderground, or...what can
possibly be eliminated since you have had past success with the same feed
configuration, a bog on flood itself due to volume.
Either way, downstream sites may wish to failover until we can resolve
