...     index=pd.date_range(start="2014-02-12", end="2014-02-15", freq="D"),
... )
>>> df
            temp_celsius  temp_fahrenheit windspeed
2014-02-12          24.3             75.7      high
2014-02-13          31.0             87.8      high

            temp_celsius windspeed
2014-02-12          24.3      high
2014-02-13          31.0      high

'default_value'
>>> ser.get('2014-02-10', '[unknown]')
'[unknown]'
