Update of weather station links

Sometimes when our station goes off line for a few moments, it takes a while for Weather Underground's search engine to find us again.  We can't affect this. This means that you see weather from a different close location. Not helpful!

So, here is another link that points directly to 68CA's weather station, using a different page. Not quite as low bandwidth (not as fast in the airplane), but it looks prettier!

New weather link

The Weather Underground mobile site can be rather unpredictable and sometimes points to the wrong weather station.  TIP: Use the iOS app instead and select the weather station KCACOTTO10.

In other news, we have a feed to WeatherBug now also.  You can get to this on a device via this link:
http://m.weatherbug.com/CA/Cottonwood-weather/local-weather/current-conditions/p18537
You may find it better than the previous one.

New Weather Station

We have installed a new weather station.    If you have a mobile device, or want a quick loading web link to the weather, bookmark this link 68CA Weather

You can also download the Weather Underground App for iOS Here or Android Here. Inside that app you can see 68CA on the map and in the list of "Personal Weather Stations".

Make sure to search for 68CA or check by the station list for KCACOTTO10

You can also look at weather history here.

Here you can see John "up the pole" on the east midfield of the runway.

I will be adding more weather links etc. as we go forward.  Most of the weather services are geared around consumers, but I'd like to add wind direction in degrees and knots (who uses mph anyway?).
