That sounds good about the robin. Maybe if moss is growing on it, the humidity is up.

Those you mention, plus temperature (hot, cold, in between), wind (speed and dir.), fog (invisible). Even though it might shake in an earthquake, I don't think that's weather related. How 'bout if a robin sits on it, it's Spring?! And it's shadow could determine solstice dates. I'm making those up.

If I remember correctly, my rock can detect 15 weather related phenomena (nons?). Who needs TV weathermen? They're usually wrong, anyway. I'll consider a video camera.

I agree. A video camera on Randall's weather station would be awesome! Somewhere in the dark recesses of my memory, someone made a weather station by hanging a shirt on a clothesline. If the shirt was wet, it was raining, if it was moving around, it was windy, etc.

Thanks for the orchid info Spud. I didn't know that. I always feel like I can't throw away an orchid after I buy it, and so I have about a dozen, with no room to spare. In 2013 I summered them outside in a sheltered spot, and they surprised me by doing very well. I don't have enough window space. Should I build a greenhouse or sunroom?

Randall, now all you need is a video camera pointed at your weather rock & wind vane, and you won't have to look-out the window to check on the weather.

I see that Home Depot has a buy 2 Orchids for the price of one for Garden Club Members.  I'm not interested, but just thought I'd mention it in case someone here is.

Comment by Randall Smith on January 8, 2014 at 8:43am

Wow, a real weather station! The best I have is a wind vane and a "weather rock"! You know--if it's wet, it's rainy, if white, snow, casts a shadow, sunny, etc., etc. Works for me!

Comment by Daniel W on January 7, 2014 at 5:13pm

I like the sound of that weather station.  Nifty.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 7, 2014 at 1:25pm

The temp here is 28.8 F @ 12:23 PM.   Some snow is predicted for the next week, but high predicted temperatures in the upper 30s should keep it melted.
