Have I finally lost Weather Underground?

Although free access to Weather Underground was terminated about a year or two ago, I have managed (don't know how) to still have free access up until now.

On Monday 20th April I had to go to work for 2 days. All was fine before I went but as usual, as soon as my back was out the door my wife turned off the power to my RPi.

Returning home today, 22nd, after scratching my head for 10 mins wondering why I had no access to Node-Red, I found my Pi in the 'off' state.
Powering back on, normal service was resumed except Weather Underground.
Is this just coincidence or has my lack of using my API over 2 days triggered a termination.
I get this response: (API key hidden)

So there is a response from WU but no weather data contained.
Anyone have any ideas?

I don't have the answer you seek, but the above is extraordinary. Divorce proceedings initiated.

How strange, as of 17:41 this evening, 23rd April 2020, I have started to receive data from WU once again.
All is looking good!

I'm still not sure why I can still receive it anyway as it was removed from free service almost 2 years ago.

I will stop the divorce procedings now but with a warning.
Maybe I will move the RPi to the garage or loft, somewhere she doesn't go.

Good idea, I'll move mine to the kitchen :+1:
