Im considering slapping the snot out of our weather guy locally ( dont tell anyone, theyll take my slingshot due to violent ideations). Yesterday they
predicted very cold and clear, this morning they said very cold and a chance of flurries.
Im sitting here with a little under 1/2 of inch of ice and snow.....still coming down. And my clematis is still green.. and my roses started greening
up just 2 weeks ago!
a few weeks ago they said rain showers and the storm was so bad it peeled the shingles off my garage like a banana and tore up parts of the siding.
Now they predict a very cold and bad Feb. So... do I buy a bikini or prepare for an ice age?
Locally we call the guy "disaster Dave".. due to him
getting overly excited over severe weather. When we had those intense series of storms here yr before last we jokes about him being breathless due to
being orgasmic over the tornadic weather when he broke in with updates. Yes, yes, I know.. D-Dave is under the gun particularly with our nutty weather
and we cant expect 100% accuracy, but I ave to have an anger object cause if I blame God.. I may receive a smackdown.. and be cursed with a black
thumb in my gardens this yr. So Dave gets it.
OP... I invested in my own weather station a little over a week ago.. Im pissed because its half put up and now Im iced up, ( damn you weatherman
Dave!) but it comes with several outdoor units and a transmitter.. and communicates with my laptop. Im not from this area and the wild weather really
irks me... messing with my gardens.
Davis has some awesome weather stations and the software is easy and pretty comprehensive. My cousin owns
an exotics nursery a few states over and uses a Davis station.. and I played with it when we were visiting last yr.. pretty cool!! Had to have one.
