Bob, when the humidity acts up, we just recalibrate for that.  If the inside temp. matches the outside temp. we know that's working real good.

Rick, if I were to put in Ham lingo, its just a shack.
Hope to repaint in the spring.

I think I saw a little buzzard poop on the side of the rain collector.

Everything else looks great though.

Where did you find those radioactive wind cups for the anemometer?

I don't know why the rain bucket is up on the roof.  It could have been attached to one of the weeds out front much easier.   #-o

Placing the rain bucket or attaching the same to a weed out front would drastically reduce the curb appeal.

Attach it to a weed would give you better ET readings wouldn't it and would be better for leaf wetness.

This whole thread has me very concerned.  I just want to know how somebody slipped onto my property and took a picture of my house without my permission???  All I ask for is a little privacy and now this.... plastered all over the world wide web!

In Greg's case it was more likely the Google boat.   :lol:
