849 – The Weather

It was quite a change today. From yesterday’s frosts today it has gone to rain. In a way, that’s good because it means tomorrow morning I will be able to see how well my basic rain gauge performs.

The max/min thermometer I bought has worked very well. I was slightly disturbed though, to read on the box that it wasn’t weather proof especially as when I ordered it advertised as indoor and outdoor. I’ve positioned it under the eaves of the shed so hopefullyu it will be protected. The rain Today will be a good test.

What I am not measuring satisfactorilly is the wind; direction and speed. I really would like analogue devices that record speed and, in the case of direction at least give a read-out so that I can record the current position. I am sure that last is straight forward but finding the appropriate device will, I suspect, not be as easy as I would like.

Another device that I recall from the Swanage weather station is measuring the suns intensity, a glasss ball focused the sun’s rays on to a special piece of paper – now I am not sure that it was actually measuring intensity or something else. I’d need to do a litttle bit of research on that.

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.
