About this site:
The weather station is a lacrosse WS-2315OAK next to the Main pc with a wired connection to the outdoor sensors. On the north of the house is the temp/hum sensor in the shade to reduce solar heating and false readings. The anemometer is on the tower and rain gauge out in the open in the front yard. It uploads every 8 seconds to the weather underground site and also generates the small weather sticker with all the info including indoor temp and humidity. You can see a few years of weather data by clicking the details link.
I was born in west Michigan and currently live in its southwest corner. I have a Bachelors degree from Ferris State University and work for the University Computing Center at WMU as a Technology Consultant. Needless to say, I'm into tech. I own three acres in the country on a wooded lot with a ravine and stream. I have many interests and hobbies. When I lived further north on the Lake Michigan shoreline my favorite thing to do was to haul a blanket, cooler and firewood down to the beach before sunset and enjoy a romantic night by the fire. The air would get cool and the water felt warm. I've tried to recreate this at home. One corner of the deck has a bricked in area for a fire and the other a hot tub. There's an above ground pool in the back. Check out the links on the left for more. Click on the rotating logo to go to the home page. Thanks! ~Kevin.
