I bought this today. It gives atmospheric pressure, relative humidity and temperature. Why would I buy something like this? I’ve written not that long back about the weather station in Swanage and the old devices that were there. I’d love to have something like that in my garden. Why would I?
I’m not at all sure I can answer that I just like it.
I have a perfectly good & technical weather station. But I like the idea of having to check every day, and manually record the figures. I’ve bought an A5 week to view journal. I am planning to make very short notes, and record the figures. I’ve also bought a very basic rain gauge.
I shall record the figures and put them into a spreadsheet and chart them. I suppose I should get a traditional weather vein as well. We did have one, but I didn’t maintain it, so it rusted up and stopped working. I’m not so sure if I’m bothered about wind direction, but speed would be quite good. I wonder if I could get an analogue anemometer?
The other thing I would like is a set of the same astronomical instruments that the likes of Galileo had. I think that would be botth quite good fun and quite interesting.
Ah well, it’s nice to have a dream, and you never know.
