Have you thought about NOT having to traipse out into the snow to turn the Rain Bucket heater on? Maybe adding an X10 remote ON/OFF power switch...or something similar?

I usually turn it on before the snow starts, but that might not be a bad idea. I'm usually out there every hour measuring snow, but a remote switch would probably help me remember to turn off the heater when the snow stops. Thanks for the suggestion. I have 120V at the pole, so that wouldn't be a problem.

Hi Jester,
Just letting you know the WU flash you're using on website no longer works or supported by most browsers.

Thanks for the heads up ValintineWeather...WU Sucks. I'm getting ready to look for another means of displaying real time weather. WU has become unreliable for Rapid Fire.
