Okay, I turned 50 this year, I'm a grandfather of two, married with two great kids. I work with heavy mining equipment and enjoy playing with tech.

Well, I installed my weather station, a Davis Vantage Pro 2, up on my roof on July 28th, 2012. I've been watching the results and really enjoying the learning curve. I have had to climb up and do a little maintenance a couple of times, (spiderwebs if you can believe that!), and decided I better add a blog to let you know when I alter the station.
I've ordered a heater for the rain gauge and expect it will be here in a few days. I'll be taking the station down at that time to install the upgrade as well as a tear down and cleaning. I estimate the station will be down for 2 hours maximum.
It's October 10 2012 and we are getting our first snowfall today! Now you know why I want the heater.
Anyway, I'll let you know when this happens, and thanks for letting me into your community!
