Tech Wiz on Weather Stations…

I am a weather geek and have been for many years. I have had some different weather stations over the years. The first was an outdoor Oregon Scientific. I also had a weather alert radio from Oregon scientific. Here is a link to my daily recap or time-lapse video of the weather over my house. By the way, you can view hurricane impacts on the Bloomsky.com website as well. There are some Bloomsky systems in North Carolina.  The other side of why a weather station at your house is interesting. It is more than simply something I’ve been doing for years. Knowing what the weather is doing where you are is a very valuable tool. Boaters always want to know what the weather is.

But so do people that want to host an outdoor party. Or (a wedding) you want to know what the weather might be, and then will be. That way you can react accordingly to the weather. The difference between having a great wedding (such as my nieces last weekend) and a bad weekend is the difference between 40 umbrellas by prepared guests, and 2 to be shared amongst 100 people. Sharing can be fun, but when you only have two umbrellas for 100 people, it takes a long time to traverse the wet areas. What you don’t know will impact you. Well at least from a weather perspective if you are not careful. Of course, you do have to consider the source for information, and in my case, I am a weather geek.

The other thing that having a weather station helps you better understand is the flow of weather. We have a dog (Raven) that is terrified of Thunder Storms. Because of the Bloomsky Micro-Weather system, I can tell where the thunderstorms are so that we can support Raven. She is a lot better now about storms than she was a few years ago. But she is clearly terrified. Taking her to my office (and my chair, yes Raven it is my chair) is a start. If we get there early and get the music on, she soothes pretty quickly. Either way, she is so much better than she used to be (running around the house in terror). Now she and her brother Dylan hide in my office. It is important to know when storms are coming!
