Weather Station is Off

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Hey folks, you may have noticed my big warning about the accuracy of the weather station data.  I finally sent the thing off to Davis’s HQ for repair.  I was going to send it earlier, but wanted it handy for the tail end of tornado season.  I hope to get it back in about six weeks, so stay tuned!

Weather Station Updated

Friday, April 17th, 2009

Since I know you are all DYING to know, you folks may have noticed the weather station forgetting to transmit and having flat lines in the trends (It’s FLATLINING!! *ahem*). Anyway…. Those sensors are now four years old, and apparently, electronic equipment that is exposed to the elements can sometimes wear out. After calling Davis, they suggested replacing the boards.

And yesterday, that’s exactly what I did.

So now, we see newly minted (and cleaned… sorry humidity contact) sensors up and running, and transmitting quite nicely! Check it out!
