Web interface wind gauge "spins" on page load

I have no idea if this has been going on for a while or not, but I just noticed it.

When the station’s web page loads, the gauge on the wind card appears to be populated with a large needle and no numbers…apparently from the last obs_sky data.

When it receives the first rapid_wind data, it changes to a small needle and the entire gauge (including the new numbers inside) “spins” to the rapid_wind direction.

MacOS Opera and Chrome, if it matters.

Certainly not the end of the world, but figured that it was worth reporting…

FWIW, I see the same thing in MS Edge Dev (chromium version), MS Edge, and Firefox.

Yup, that’s the one!

I’ve seen it and figured it was an Easter egg called “Wheel of Fortune”.

Rapid wind really knows how to make an entrance!

I will be sure that this one makes it to the list of things to get cleaned up.

Thanks for the reports!
