new rain bucket and general maintenance

By: ichelseawu, 4:50 PM GMT on September 17, 2014

Well yesterday at about 1140 to 21:10 I installed a new rain bucket and repositioned the solar sensors on my PWS.
I also repositioned the station on the pole as it had moved and re-aligned it to face north. I found that the U bolts holding it were loose.

The new rain bucket has spikes around the perimeter to deter birds landing on the bucket edges and stealing the debris grate  from inside of the bucket.
I also gave it a general clean.

Oh well I have noticed That my site had a few messages on it today. That could have been because My weather station software stopped at about 03:00 in the morning.
