Weather Station

My Christmas gift from my parents this year was a weather station.  I've been waiting for help installing it, and that help is coming this weekend.  The plan is to install a wooden post in the garden and mount the station to that.  The station transmits the data wirelessly to the gray data logger in the photo above, and I've bought software that allows me to download the data to my computer.  Now I'll be able to keep track of the conditions in my backyard and compare them to the two nearby weather stations, one at the airport and one near the Cornell campus.
