Day and Night – Up on the Roof

Earlier this month, a full moon shines through hazy clouds as a south-east wind spins an “anemometer,” up there on our roof. The station also includes a rain bucket, temperature, humidity and barometric sensors; solar cells, and transmitter to the display inside.  

I believe my wife, family and neighbors are quielty tolerant of some of my obsessions and often concerned about my well-being.  🙂

Keeping An Eye On The Weather – Two, A Birdseye!

DSC_0763 - Version 2Like a similar image posted last year, I believe this is a Northern Mockingbird (Not Woodpecker!!) , who apparently likes to ride on my weathervane.  Calling him “Klingon,” and wondering how he “gets a grip,” he brazenly sang a happy tune as he swung around, inspiring me to focus on his …sharp little claws. In fact, there is a small scratch on the surface,  just under his sharp little left, rear claw.
