I removed the weather data struct from structs.h, and stuck it in with 
the rest of the zone data. I alterd the stuff in weather.c and 
act.informitive.c to take this into account.

Every tick, I loop through all the zones and alter/check their weather 
pattern just like stock code, but each zone changes on its own.

On boot, the starting weather pattern is randomly determined. I changed 
it so that it looped through all the zones and set their weather pattern 

I also went a step farther and add climates to the zone data. There are 
different weather patterns for the different climates. No snow in the 
tropical areas, and no monsoons in the arctic regions.

I would post some code on it, but it's all archived away while I'm in the 
middle of Slackware re-install. If you need more details, let me know. I 
should be able to provide them towards the end of the day. (Once this 
install is done.)
