Davis Vantage Vue Arrives

Well I have finally took the plunge and will be upgrading the weather station to a Davis Vantage Vue system. This new unit is by far the best setup possible with very accurate readings given by the unit.  I hope to be setting this up soon when time allows and weather permitting.

Watch this space….

Update to Weather Station

I had noticed over the last few weeks that the rain sensor was not working. I have replaced the sensor gauge out now and hope this will now measure rain again, though I hope the rain stays away for a few weeks! I’m sick of rain!

Unfortunately when I restarted my Weather Station back up I noticed the HDD reporting bad sectors.  I have swapped out the HDD with a new SSD i had bought last week for another project.

Next  plan is to make a new backup once i can confirm all features are working correctly.

A very sad Day.

With my heart broken, I learnt of my Dad had passed away on Saturday 12th April 2014 at his allotment which he loved dearly.

You will be sorely missed.

Family - 154

I have added a page to the site to pay tribute to my Dad.
