We have given many of you the impression that hu-dad is a dog geek. But he is much more of a geek than that! He is also a weather geek. Sitting in the middle of our field is this:
Now a weather station has electronics, a wireless transmitter to our home internet, a solar panel – lots of things that can wrong. But our technical issue at the moment is that birds are sitting on the rain collector. They are apparently well-fed birds. With lots of output, if you get our drift. And that sort of clogs up the rain collector.
So, the hu-dad decided to construct a bird barrier to prevent the social gatherings. Believe it or not, the internet has weather geek forums to share ideas of how to do things like that. And, of course, the hu-dad went to those sites, got some ideas, and went to work.
If you want to follow our weather live, we do have a widget on this page (though, because it is in flash, some devices can’t see it) or via our page at Weather Underground.
Oh, and if you are a weather geek, we are CWOP EW1053.
