I cycle 10 miles to work, I live on an island in the English channel and occasionally, it is raining, sometimes windy, sometimes both. 10mph wind is ok, 15mph is okay without rain, 20mph wind is sometimes okay without rain. When the weather in the immediate outside does not warrant a cycle, but a taxi, I would like alexa to ask me whether to book a taxi.

What it does

I ask alexa "What the cycling like?" AWS function calls back to the device, pinned outside to check average windspeed and current air moisture, then tells me the overall state of the cycling weather. Then, if one of the predetermined non-cycling specific conditions is met, Alexa will follow up with a suggestion to get a taxi. If I say ok, then Alexa will use AWS/Trello to send a message to my local taxi firm.
