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 are some details on the station, which is located on our property at Taconic Lake in the Town of Grafton.  It's powered by solar cells, transmits a signal to a module located in my house which then feeds the signal via a Time-Warner cable 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.
