[python #VOC-640241]: siphon filter_time_nearest : No datasets with times found


Due to the way the grib collections are structured by the THREDDS Data Server, 
you need to use `.catalog_refs` rather than `.datasets`. So that code would 
work as:

    cat = TDSCatalog('http://thredds.ucar.edu/thredds/catalog/grib/'

    # Find the run closest to 6 hours ago
    time = datetime.utcnow() - timedelta(hours=6)
    ds = cat.catalog_refs.filter_time_nearest(time)

    # Find all runs from the last day
    end = datetime.utcnow()
    start = end - timedelta(days=1)
    cat.catalog_refs.filter_time_range(start, end)

Also, if you're accessing model data, you just might be better off using the 
'Full Collection (Reference / Forecast Time) Dataset', 'Best GFS Quarter Degree 
Forecast Time Series', or 'Latest Collection for GFS Quarter Degree Forecast' 
datasets that *are* available within the `.datasets` attribute. You can also 
see them listed at the top of the catalog here:


Hope this helps,
