   I have some maps that display the latest streamflow and
   precipitation at our gage sites. The gage data is updated hourly.
   How can I run grass from a background cron process to
   automatically execute the script that updates the maps. I know
   how to use cron reasonably well, I just don't know how to
   run a full grass session from a script.
