Remember now you can get the new VP2 location data on Weatherlink. You can access the data through http://www.weatherlink.com/user/walrusman444
I woke up in the early afternoon with a fair number of calls, including one from my lawyer and one from Ray, and one a bit later from Tracy and Robin as usual on their way to work. I also spoke with my friend Bob L about the recent mountain trip twice. I had cereal and coffee for a late brunch late in the afternoon, and continued to work on catching up on everything as much as I can. Just can’t do it all in one day. “Weatherquack” is up and running and I am back in the swing of things. I continue working on filling in missing data in my records for the days while away, and I just emailed my friend Rick H with the data I do have to help him determine a reasonable estimation on the data I am missing. 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 am a bit dismayed that up through Wednesday, no one new has signed up since the initial signup burst right after we got set up and operational. I also drank some H2O from my ginormous water bottle throughout the evening and early morning hours.
On Channel 4 radar at 0415, the Eastern US is generally free from any rain echoes at this time. The closest rain action is over parts of WI and MI.
