INDOT winter severity index

task tables

"location" try to keep an up-to-date copy under $INDOT = /group/mebaldwi/data/archive/indot

"documentation" should provide the section header name for the full text in main project documentation

"status" include your name and date and a brief description of the status (i.e., working on documentation, need wetbulb formula, complete)

"plots" provide a link to a website where plots can be viewed
