After a very long, hot drought (even for our summer-dry climate this was a doozie), it started raining in earnest on Oct 12. Over the next three days or so, it rained 2.5 inches.
I was so glad to have my new weather station all ready to record the deluge – and it turns out, it even has a bit of a sense of humor!
The station records hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly info and graphs data on temp, hi/low, rainfall, rain rate (cats N dogs, or just in/hr), humidity, barometer (rising slowly, falling fast), wind speed and direction, and has a solar panel to charge a battery to keep it going overnight. Oh, the fun we will have!
