Gmail 'weather skin' not working (stuck on cloudy)

My GMail and iGoogle use a 'weather' skin, so I enjoyed the daytime sun or clouds, the evening sunset and the night stars, all correct according to the weather. Lately its stuck on a cloudy day. Apparently (click here to read the discussion) there were too many people like me who enjoyed it.

I suppose the guys at Google could write a small server that takes the info and distributes it, so that their servers don't get hit so much, but then its probably an issue of payment for the info, and not technical.

Meanwhile its a good idea to change your Gmail skin to something more functional, so you don't get totally alienated from the outside world...
