A great site to find your local heating degree days (HDD's)

I've discovered a great and simple website for researching your areas local heating degree day (HDD) history. The only caveat is that it defaults to a base (they call it a "balance point") of 60 degrees F, so it must be set to read a base of 65 degrees in order for the data to match up with nearly all other reported HDD data. Fortunately this is easy to do. Here is the link:
