If anyone knows Dan really well you will find that he loves knowing and watching the weather. We bought a weather station the other day. It has multiple functions. It reads indoor/outdoor temp and humidity, average wind speed, wind gust speed, rain gage, wind direction, barometric pressure, relative and absolute air pressure, inches of mercury, and also shows a tendency which is similar to a forcast based on weather conditions. The weather station is powered by a solar cell and wirelessly broadcasts to our indoor touch screen digital display. We combine our weather station with a software program called cumulus. It stores and graphs a lot more information. It updates to the internet every second using "rapid fire" technology. And is compatible with NOAA, weather.com, weather underground, weatherbug, and any other weather site. I have added a gadget to the side of my blog that will allow you to see our current conditions at all times. By clicking on the weather gadget it will bring you to our weather underground page that includes 10 day local forcasts and other information. You can also have this weather gadget on your desktop and to do that just click "make this station a sticker" on our weather underground page.
Today we gathered up plants that we like and put them in places where we thought they'd look good.
