Hello again,
   As you know, Tressa Fowler provided a quick response to the question
I sent yesterday concerning ROW_MEAN_WDIR and AGGR_WDIR.  Since I
referenced "multiple problems with StatAnalysis" in that message, I
thought I'd let you know that my problems are now fixed, so you
shouldn't lose any sleep worrying about my unspecified problems.

   The first problem just went away, so I have no idea what I was doing
yesterday.  The other problems were caused by 
     1) having all my pressure level UGRD choices in my PointStatConfig
file in a list before all my corresponding VGRD choices (e.g.,
UGRD/P100-225, UGRD/P225-425, UGRD/P425-625, VGRD/P100-225,
VGRD/P225-425, VGRD/P425-625,) then the UGRD/Z10, VGRD/Z10 so I got the
10m wind direction results from StatAnalysis, but not the upper air
results.  The documentation is clear on putting the equivalent VGRD
parameter right after the UGRD parameter; I just set this up previously
when I was not concerned about wind vectors and did not think to change
it later.  
     2) using -obs_lev P100-225 rather than P225-100 in my stat_analysis
job commmand line.  I guess the pressure level range may be listed in
either order for PointStat, but must be higher level to lower level for

   You should be pretty proud of your program if I can get it working
(admittedly with help, and with no attempt to use MODE.)  Hopefully the
majority of users will be more computer-savvy than I am.  Have a good
