If I remember correctly, my rock can detect 15 weather related phenomena (nons?). Who needs TV weathermen? They're usually wrong, anyway. I'll consider a video camera.

I agree. A video camera on Randall's weather station would be awesome! Somewhere in the dark recesses of my memory, someone made a weather station by hanging a shirt on a clothesline. If the shirt was wet, it was raining, if it was moving around, it was windy, etc.

Thanks for the orchid info Spud. I didn't know that. I always feel like I can't throw away an orchid after I buy it, and so I have about a dozen, with no room to spare. In 2013 I summered them outside in a sheltered spot, and they surprised me by doing very well. I don't have enough window space. Should I build a greenhouse or sunroom?

Randall, now all you need is a video camera pointed at your weather rock & wind vane, and you won't have to look-out the window to check on the weather.

I see that Home Depot has a buy 2 Orchids for the price of one for Garden Club Members.  I'm not interested, but just thought I'd mention it in case someone here is.

Wow, a real weather station! The best I have is a wind vane and a "weather rock"! You know--if it's wet, it's rainy, if white, snow, casts a shadow, sunny, etc., etc. Works for me!

I like the sound of that weather station.  Nifty.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 7, 2014 at 1:25pm

The temp here is 28.8 F @ 12:23 PM.   Some snow is predicted for the next week, but high predicted temperatures in the upper 30s should keep it melted.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 7, 2014 at 12:36pm

Spud! that sounds like a great weather station. That idea goes onto my wish list right now! Thanks. 

It is 10:30 AM 29 degrees F. according to my computer weather app. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 7, 2014 at 12:11pm

Joan, hope you can get your thermometer soon.  I've got one I can see from my kitchen window in the back of the house, but the one I like the most is one under the front open porch that sends a signal to two receivers.  One in the front room and one in the downstairs bedroom\entertainment room.  

Love being able to glance up from my easy chair to see the outside temperature. 

I've got a weather station that's been waiting patiently to be put-up for ~10 years.  With my increased ambition still here, I'll probably get it up in the spring.  It measures wind speed and direction, relative humidity, air pressure, rainfall, and temperature.  It sends a signal to a receiver that I can connect to  my computer to keep a constant record of conditions. Will be nice when I get it operational.
