Weather Nut? Who Me?
Hi, I’m Paul and I have a weather addiction. There, that’s off my chest!
I started off by building thermometers, barometers, and radios for elementary school science fairs. Pretty hard to compete with a homemade operating volcano, so nobody else found my stuff
very interesting, but I did, and still do!
But that was decades ago…
…On to today, after getting into livestock ranching in 1998, (Alpaca Mining Company), I needed to get serious about the weather. That’s how my home weather station adventure began.
The selection of modern electronic weather stations in very broad; finding the one that is right is a daunting task.
Having operated various internet enabled wireless home weather stations, I’ve seen what works, and what does not work.
I’ve also learned to appreciate the quality of the customer support departments. As the weather station models get more complex, the more likely you are to need to ask for some help. I had to trash an expensive 6 month old weather station due to NO help from the company. GRRR
One of these days my old weather station is going to quit on me, so in my hunt for a replacement I
ran across products that not only monitor the weather but also lets you keep an eye on the environment in, under, and around your home. The selection of new home weather stations have grown enormously from just a few years ago, and all the new technology involved is incredible.
I’m having a ball looking into all the weather related tools available right now, and I hope you enjoy reading about what I have found out!
Thanks for looking!
