The caching is pretty important. weather.com has very strict rules about how
often a user can poll the site for weather info; using Services_Weather's
caching routines obeys these rules. It would probably be better to try to
figure out why caching in the temporary directory is failing than to run
without it.

This looks like mine, except I have a directory explicitly listed (instead of

Does the user your web server runs as have permission to write to the /tmp
directory? (I think it's the user your web server runs as that has to have
write permission. I'm cc'ing the horde list for the archives, so I hope
someone will correct me if I'm wrong).
