If you have been on top of the mountain and seen these two interesting looking items, you may have wondered what they were. We have an actual NOAA Weather Station that sits below the dining room.
The tube is a rain gauge. We measure the rainfall by collecting it in the gauge.
I call this the Temperature Gauge.
No, the white box is not a bee hive. We have had all kinds of guesses. This is the box that houses the temperature gauge. This is now considered the back up gauge since the weather guys at NOAA installed a digital reader that is located in our pantry. We have a sensor in the white box and it relays the information to our indoor reader. Speaking of weather, I am sure you wan to know what our high and low were. The high yesterday was 49º with a low of 25º. It is currently cloudy but no rain. It is cold up top. If you are hiking up today, bring warm clothing with you. You will need it. Happy Hiking
