This is London

I managed to get my FridgeGizmo prototype to display the weather in London! Ok, it’s in Fahrenheit, but it’s London weather! Lahhhhhvery!

Where I was going wrong was by not realising that of course the US zip codes were stored as numerical variables, whereas international Yahoo weather city codes contain letters. So I changed the zip code for Nashville, to UKXX0085 for London – with added quote marks.

// Weather
$zipcode = "UKXX0085";
$title = "London UK WX.";

I then added a couple of quote marks to the YQL query, either side of $zipcode, escaping them with backslash characters:

from%20weather.forecast%20where%20location%3D\"".$zipcode."\"&format=json
