The anemometer battery was being replaced this morning when the box slid down the pole, causing it to tear on the inside of the box. I will be taking it down for repair tomorrow; until then, it will report "CALM"

Wind equipment continues to read 0. Also hi/lo will be bad today due to station reboot.

We continue to experience problems with the wind speed/direction transmitting for longer than a few days at a time. Also today, and in some previous days, there were brief "repetitive" data outages due to us sending the station into Setup mode to detect the anemometer.

The Davis station on the AccuWeather lawn has not been reporting rain data since 8/12. I checked it last night and it was not clogged. I will have to disassemble it later this week to determine the problem.

Meanwhile use my home stationís rainfall, which is 1.2 miles SSE.

I took apart the rain gauge yesterday evening. I could not find a malfunction but I cleaned the tipping buckets and cleared spider nests from the electronics. While cleaning the buckets, a FALSE 0.07Ē of rain was recorded for the day.

Today the rain gauge started reporting again during this afternoonís showers, picking up 0.05Ē so far. The next heavier rain we receive will help solidify the theory that it has been fixed.

ALSO I will be at Corl Street Elementary next Friday attempting an upgrade to the firmware of their station which I believe will keep it online during the school year. The firmware upgrade finally got my home station up and running last month, after months of no data.

This station was down from approx. 10 am 12/7 to 11:30 Am 12/9 due to an accidental disconnect during maintenance at my desk.

The Davis weather station was relocated closer to the satellite dishes around November 1st, to get it closer to the wall outlet and keep it out of the middle of the yard. The rain gauge heater cable was run and working as of November 15th.

While up on the roof today Nov. 21, I discovered that the Davis stationís anemometer cups/vane had been knocked sideways, so the roof has not been measuring accurate wind speed or direction since it was damaged. My guess is it was probably the hail storm, but itís also possible it was the 50th anniversary storm. I knocked it back straight, but will have to keep an eye on it this winter. If necessary Iíll get a ladder and go up to tighten the screws.
