855 – The Weather

The weather is with us all day, every day it affects us all. Many aspects of the weather are fairly easy to measure. It is possible to buy weather stations that measure different aspects and present that data to the internet. I am very likely to go back there.

In the meantime, I am quite enjoying gathering what information I have access to manually. I have been looking for something to measure wind speed and wind direction I’d like an anemometer and a wind vane with a mechanical readout. I haven’t found anything yet but I shall keep looking.

In the meantime, I thought I could put up a windsock. They are quite cheap on Amazon (less than £10) and others only a little more expensive even come with a pole. A windsock would give an indication of intensity and direction. But if I am to go down that route I will have to consult, because it would be quite intrusive.

The other thing I could do is record cloud type and cover. I understand that cloud cover is measured in octets (eighths). And the different cloud types of which I know some, but not all. Another bit of learning to do I think.

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.
