Thanks again guys, nice to meet everyone.
Well over my new years eve, I sat home instead of going out and my wife was occupied with a sleep over for the little ones. I got to spend time on here, wxForum.net and did manage to watch youtube videos about CoCoRahs. It does have me excited and as of now I seem to want to get on board. I am a morning person, very early to rise. 7am is not problem for me but I have to admit it seems quite a commitment. I don't want to let them down.
This brings a few questions, if I may ask:
Wondering once you get used to the daily ritual, how long it takes each morning to inspect, log and post?
Especially in the winter how long does it take?
Another thought is for the relatively new CocoRahs members, does it get boring or monotonous making this commitment?
I am definitely the type to like records in weather. I print out weatherlink reports each month anyway as well as check my upload to Wunderground and now Cwop twice a day.
As far as Cwop goes: My Davis Vp1 was up since 2004, replaced by the Vp2 in 2006 at which time I got on-board Wunderground. My typical mounting place for my weather station was on a 15 foot mast on my chimney. Anemometer on the top and Iss down by the chimney. Yep! The chimney is used for exhaust gasses from my furnace. I did see some bias which bothered me. Upon reading up on CWop siting, I knew what I had to do. I have made some changes. I now have a remote Davis temp humidity station in my yard 5' from the ground with it's own tx, rain gauge is in my yard at nearly 5' and the anemometer has its own solar remote tx up on the mast. I guess this is better but I to expect to have some work to do when I get QC'd. That won't bother me too much. It will be interesting working it out. I do admit, I did some reading on my barometer and it baffles me completely.
Happy New Year Everybody!!!!
