Rensselaer Plateau Weather Station

Baby, it's cold outside!

I took this screenshot of my Rensselaer Plateau Weather Station's reading at 6:15 a.m. this morning.  Note that the low was -10 degrees at 5:22 a.m. 

I provide a feed to Davis Instruments' webpage set up from my station and to a webpage set up for for my weather station.

Here's some details on the station, which is located on top of a storage shed on my property on the Taconic Lake. It's powered by solar cells, transmits a signal to a module located in my house which then feeds the signal via a FairPoint Communications' DSL internet link to Davis Instruments in Hayward, California where it is routed into Davis Instruments' server for distribution on the internet via their WeatherLink site.
