The Weather Channel (Weather.com)

You have probably heard about the The Weather Channel's move to Drupal before but the site launched last week. In addition to being one of the most highly trafficed sites on the web, Weather.com is currently the largest Drupal site with 20 million pages. This is a big win for Drupal.

We Want Your Feedback

As a part of the effort to make the Drupal.org user experience better for the community the Drupal Association is requesting feedback. Specifically they are "... looking for people who work at companies that use Drupal, but don’t provide a Drupal product or service." If that's you get in touch and share your thoughts.
