On another note, the weather station is up and running as you can see. The graphs are working great and more will be added as Karl finds time and gets over his sore back, as he hurt himself trying to open his car door after they froze. So he is home from work recuperating for a couple days. Quite a painful ordeal.   Always something.  Just got to figure out how to get his doors open on his car now for him.  Might have to make a trip to North Bay and give him a hand.  Back to the weather station. As I said the graphs are all working fine and sensor is doing its job, other than one part which is the wind speed.  With all the rain we have had and then dropping so fast, the cups froze up solid, so will take a day or so to come back on line. Being solid aluminum, as soon as the sun hits it, it will thaw things out.  Other than that things are working fine.  Enjoy your day my friends.
