Our New Toy

Or should I say, the husband's new toy as he's the one who wanted it. He's been talking about getting a weather station for quite some time and finally found one he liked. He spent a good part of last weekend working on installing it and in between all the cussing, he seemed to manage to get it to work.

This is the rain and moisture gauge part of the station and I would show you the wind gauge that is on top of the roof except for the fact that hubby is on the ladder in the photo and he would not be happy to know I posted a photo of him online. Sorry, he's funny like that!
Here's what the weather monitor looks like all lit up on the wall between our kitchen and family room. The station actually measures more than just the wind and rain - it lets us know the humidity level and temperature outside as well as inside, wind chill, sunrise and sunset times, moon phases, barometric pressure and other factors that escape me at the moment - so it is quite a cool little gadget!

It comes in handy for getting a much more accurate feel of the weather here at home so if you're in my neck of the woods and wish to know the true statistics on any given day, give me a shout!
