Weather Station Moved


I moved the Rensselaer Plateau Weather Station from the top of our shed to the top of our new raised bed septic system.  At the previous location, too many hemlock needles would fall into the cone that funnels to a very tiny hole used by an internal micro-switch to count drops, and thus measuring rainfall.  It's painted green, so a bit hard to spot  -- but it's there in the middle of the raised bed in the above photo. 



The solar cells will receive a lot more sunlight now, although they always provided sufficient power in the past.
