I have the contents of the google weather XML file stored using server.createobject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP").  I just need to know how to get the values I want into variables.  I found some code on the web and got most of it, but can't seem to get the last updated date/time.  I just don't understand exactly what I am looking at.  I will post the code below.  I would really like to know how to get all the values into variables, but this is as far as I have gotten so far.  The one I am primarily concerned with is reportTime.  Thanks!
zip = "47804"

'Google API Weather Call
set xmlHTTP = server.createobject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
xmlHTTP.open "Get", "http://www.google.com/ig/api?weather="&Zip, false
Set xml = xmlHTTP.ResponseXml

city = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).firstChild.firstChild.attributes(0).nodeValue
currenttemp = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).firstChild.nextSibling.childNodes(1).attributes(0).nodeValue
humidity = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).firstChild.nextSibling.childNodes(3).attributes(0).nodeValue
conditionstext = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).firstChild.nextSibling.childNodes(0).attributes(0).nodeValue
conditionsicon = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).childNodes(2).childNodes(3).attributes(0).Value
winds = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).firstChild.nextSibling.childNodes(5).attributes(0).nodeValue
reportTime = xml.documentElement.childNodes(1).firstChild.text

response.write City&"<br>"
response.write currenttemp&"<br>"
response.write conditionstext&"<br>"
response.write humidity&"<br>"
response.write winds&"<br>"
response.write "<img src='http://google.com/"&conditionsicon&"'><br>"
response.write reportTime
