Am I the only one?

By: Grift, 7:47 PM GMT on November 24, 2009

Looking at the other stations in the Ocean Shores area, I'm beginning to think that currently I'm the only one with a fully operational station. (at the moment)

As we progress into winter the rainfall rate is going to increase which is common here. I'm still waiting for the temperature to take a dive again and give us snow on the beach again.

I spoke too soon. It appears the other stations in the area are up and running again as well.

I lost power here then had a string of dark days. Next thing I know a few of the sensors outside are saying "low battery." Eventually the rain gage stopped reporting completely. Well, after some jumping through hoops, I managed to get them all up and reporting again.

I really need to look into getting a small computer to act as the data logger for the system. Then I can configure it to reboot when the power goes out and comes back on.


YES, I'm back

After today's rain storm, I know all the equipment for the station is working. The station is now totally back in operation.


Seems to be holding so far.

The new memory stick and new version of the meteohub software seems to be holding. So far.


Well, now we get to see

Over the the last few weeks my NSLU2 system seemed to be dying. I finally starting checking and found out that the flash drive wasn't of the greatest quality and repeated power outages over the last few years had finally caught up with it. So I grabbed a new image from METOHUB.DE and flashed it to a new thumb drive. A quick plug in and I think it's fixed. We'll see.
