I don't think our paths have crossed, which is surprising.
As far as CartoPy and PyART are concerned, here's a notebook we used in our AMS
short course a couple years ago:
There's an example plotting some counties here:
Happy to answer any other questions you have, but I agree, resources are
somewhat lacking. If you get the point of having a good example, I'd be happy
to add it here:
I'd love to come down and get on a soapbox about Python 3, CartoPy, etc.
