I have a couple of questions:

o what version of the Learning Guide are you working through

o what data server are you pointing to for the BLIZZARD dataset

To list out the data server you are using for the BLIZZARD dataset, run:


I just pointed at the server used by recent workshop participants
(adde.ucar.edu) and ran the command you list and got the expected

Pos      Description                        Schema  NRows NCols  Date

Thank you.
