So what does one call a weather station imbedded in a block of ice?

How does one heat that new bucket design?

Put the old bucket back on.  Seriously, that's Davis' answer for heating the new aero-cone setup.....

Oh yeah - the old "That's not a bug - it is an undocumented feature".  More proof that Davis has lost touch.
Well, maybe the new bucket design is a "southern, warm-climate model".  :lol:

But, seriously, I use to have bird poop regularly (where'd they find all those seedy berries?) clog the drain on the bucket.  Since installing the new model bucket I've literally had zero instances of debris/poop in the bucket.  Even leaves have stayed out but I never had much of a problem with them.  Matter of fact, I don't think I've removed the bucket since I installed it last year.  If you don't need the heater (for example, live in a warmer climate) then the new design is great!!!  If you need the heater, well, maybe not?

do people in areas that get snow, are they still able to order a Davis unit with the original rain gauge style?
(i.e so a heater can be added)

Well, yes and no. The previous 7720 heater is now replaced by a 7721 part, which is 7720 + the old-style rain cone. Guess it's a bit like having separate sets of summer and winter tyres for a car (sorry, tires for an auto).
