It is a known mweather home applet bug: it crashes the desktop app on
startup, usually.  Disable the applet, and you won't get reboot loops.

If you have an ssh server on the device, I think you could ssh into it
and sudo apt-get remove mweather.  Or just keep rebooting until you get
lucky and mweather doesn't crash for you -- it doesn't *always* crash.
