Working with Multiple Plots in Matplotlib Odd Error

Screen Link: https://app.dataquest.io/m/143/multiple-plots/10/adding-a-legend

My Code:

# fig = plt.figure(figsize=(10,6))
# colors = ['red', 'blue', 'green', 'orange', 'black']
# for i in range(5):
#     start_index = i*12
#     end_index = (i+1)*12
#     subset = unrate[start_index:end_index]
#     plt.plot(subset['MONTH'], subset['VALUE'], c=colors[i])
# plt.show()
#Solution
fig = plt.figure(figsize=(10,6))
colors = ['red', 'blue', 'green', 'orange', 'black']
for i in range(5):
    start_index = i*12
    end_index = (i+1)*12
    subset = unrate[start_index:end_index]
    label = str(1948 + i)
    plt.plot(subset['MONTH'], subset['VALUE'], c=colors[i], label=label)
plt.legend(loc='upper left')

plt.show()

What I expected to happen:

As this is the answer key (I got a similar error with my code) I would expect it to work. Kind of frustrating, I have brief periods of time I can do course work and to be stopped by something causes me to not be able to meet my goals.

What actually happened:

/dataquest/system/env/python3/lib/python3.4/site-packages/plotly/matplotlylib/renderer.py:390: UserWarning:

Bummer! Plotly can currently only draw Line2D objects from matplotlib that are in 'data' coordinates!

/dataquest/system/env/python3/lib/python3.4/site-packages/plotly/matplotlylib/renderer.py:487: UserWarning:

I found a path object that I don't think is part of a bar chart. Ignoring.

I tried code did not get any error.

Did you try to submit answer ? actually it seems warnings not error so it should pass answer.

Dishin,

Yeah, it is working now. Not sure what was up. Maybe one of the servers was a little ill or something last night. Thanks for validating.
