Weather — August 2017

Our weather station may be slowly dying. Often it fails to receive data for a time, so it may need replacement soon. The low for the 12th is an estimate based on local airport data. ~ I moved the base unit closer to the sensor; this appears to have fixed the problem, at least for now.

We were out of town on the 20th and 21st for the solar eclipse, then again for the 26th and 27th for a wedding.
