161/366 I manage to get out

With today being Thursday, I have managed to get out three out of the four days this week. I have no idea what the weather is going to be doing in the morning, but if it it even raining only just a little bit, I am likely to go for a walk.

One of my activities which can be affected by the weather. During normal times I would have done a couple of RAYNET events over the last month. One that happens between Christmas and the New Year is the Purbrook Ladies 5 mile run. I’ve been on several Marshall points for this race, providing radio comms for the marshalls. I can’t remember many RAYNET activities which have been affected by the weather.

The interest in the weather for specific weather is obvious. But my interest in weather extends beyond that. My first attempt to measure rainfall was probably when I was about 9-10 years old. I’d brought a small empty jar in to school, and the rain funnel, was actually a toy rocket I had. Totally inadequate, but it did tie in with a project we had at going at the time. And, it did work, it caught rain, I can remember it as clear as a bell. I won’t of course attest as to its accuracy!

The interest in weather has never left me, I of course have a weather station, a Davis Vantage Vue, which earlier today I noticed had been blown so that it is facing in the wrong direction – not sure how that has happened, so I need to check that. The weather station itself is at least 8 years old so it is due for an upgrade. The next one I want to be able to feed to the Internet, so I can look at it whenever I want. Not sure when that will happen though.

I’ve just checked the forecast for tomorrow morning, cold and dry, so it looks like the morning walk is on. Which is good.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
