I've just created the entry into hordes db and data was sucessfully
downloaded using http://weather.noaa.gov/data/nsd_cccc.gz as its source.

Next, from where do I select either my location and/or airport from?
I see this choice nowhere within options.

>> ftp://ftp.horde.org/pub/jonah/jonah_weathercountries.tsv
>> ftp://ftp.horde.org/pub/jonah/jonah_weatherstations.tsv
