Well, Santa was good to the Turner household. Highlights include a nice bracelet for Kelly, a basketball goal for Hallie, and a weather station for yours truly. It is a WM918 from Oregon Scientific.
There’s a funny story about how the weather station arrived. Kelly ordered it for me from an online retailer and it was delivered via FedEx in time for Christmas and all was well. Not long after that, the doorbell rang again. A confused UPS man stood on the porch, delivering a FedEx package out of his Ryder truck. Kelly then opened it to find – you guessed it – another weather station! Boy, Kelly really outdid herself this year.
I’m checking into some Linux-based weather software, like WX200, WX200d, or the Star Trek-looking Wx/Net, to help archive the weather data. Before long, I’ll be boring everyone I know with arcane weather statistics! W00t!
