Well, yes, if you are using plot_day_summary you are dead in the
water. I specifically wrote plot_day_summary2 using line collections
for Vinj to solve the performance problems that creating so many line
instances causes. In fact, it was a request by Vinj that led to the
creation of LineCollections in the first place. Are you not using
