Elevated the station to 311 feet. It is now 14' above its earlier position. The solar housing appears to be stuck and will not seat properly. If it is forced into position, it may break. I will make an attempt at reseating the solar housing once the batteries need changing -- this could happen at any time as the station has not had a battery change since November or December of 2012.

In order to update the CWOP altimeter & altitude an email was sent off to its directors. It was returned. "Sorry this office is closed due to furlough."

The Mesonet West station is reading Orange. The settings for wind were re-set from -90 calibration to 0. The rain gauge issued an error reading on 10/5/2013, the day the station was moved slightly Southwest by 10 feet and elevated another 10 feet above the eave.

Hello WATH35, I'm Dave from San Jose, CA. That was an interesting blog about the elevation of a weather station.
