Designs like this (Davis Vue, 5in1, etc) do not do well with snow.  My experience the snow does pile up and obstruct the anemometer.

Yeah oh well. I will try some silicone spray on my 5-in-1 this season.
But if I ever have to buy another weather station (and I'm sure I will) it will have a separate
Anemometer like the big Davis (forgot the name, but you know...)

 Here is one of the Feature from the Atlas 7/8 Specifications............


   Enhance the accuracy of wind readings by adding
on the optional extension kit, which includes 30-feet
of cable for optimal anemometer placement

Good to see nobody was hurt.
Heck, the police chase video afterwords was even better. :-)

On Sat. night an EF-1 tornado hit the Riverwind Casino in Norman, OK.  When it happened the Beach Boys were winding down a sold out concert there.  Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin was in attendance. She and others were evacuated into a shelter because rain was leaking through the roof and there were concerns the roof could collapse.  See what the leaks were like as shown near the bottom of this link:  http://www.news9.com/story/36652102/apparent-tornado-causes-damage-at-riverwind-casino-in-norman

Here, a KFOR weatherman, who was monitoring the storm, was present near the casino when it passed over.  It suddenly formed on radar, so not much advance warning.

The passage of the front here only brought a pretty good rain.  It might get close to 2 inches before it clears out later tonight.

I personally have not ttried this n MB, but I _think_ it should work.  Example:

#!/bin/sh
HOST='ftp.users.qwest.net'
USER='yourid'
PASSWD='yourpw'
FILE='file.txt'

ftp -n $HOST <<END_SCRIPT
quote USER $USER
quote PASS $PASSWD
put $FILE
quit
END_SCRIPT
exit 0

OK, I see that option but am not sure how it works. Can you point me to some examples for FTP upload, for example?

Use a "script" event rather than an FTP
