Remember that right now you cannot get the balcony location data on Weatherlink. Hopefully when it does finally re-appear it will be from the ground and not the balcony. Once back online you can access the data through http://www.weatherlink.com/user/walrusman444
I woke up in the early afternoon and took a shower, and joined Marty who had been working on the VP2 after disconnecting the signal from the sensors to the display and to the internet in the morning. I did have a late brunch of cereal, banana, coffee and 1/2 a cantaloupe. Marty left about 4 PM, then I checked out my mail, email, and phone calls from my daughters Robin and Tracy, and later on with Ray. For dinner I finished off the salmon, green beans and rice a roni from earlier in the week, along with some delicious corn salad that Mike brought over from Tracy. He also brought over some fixins to add to my avocado to make guacomole out of, and some smoked and teriyaki chicken. That all will be for Thursday night. I watched a good part of the ESPYs on TV, a most enjoyable once a year sports award show. “Weatherquack” is back up and running, as yesterday’s weather post did upload successfully. I hope to see many of you on Weatherquack http://www.weatherquack.com real soon – it is completely free and easy to use once you complete your registration and a short ramping up period. I also drank some from my ginormous water bottle throughout the evening and early morning hours.
On Channel 4 radar at 0446, the four state region is clear. The closest precipitation on radar appears to be in mid-upper stretches of New England and New York along with storms and showers in parts of IN and OH, and a good portion of MI at this time, heading East.
As of 0446 EDT, the data from my balcony (VP2) in missing, Taylor (on the ground just below the balcony) is also missing. The data from the Lakewood Country Club WXBug station and the USG VP2 station across the street are the only stations available as a result, and are as follows :
