Just a short update today.
The forecast is looking mostly dry and cold with just a few light flurries today possible. On Friday there is a system set to come through. That system looks rainy at this point, not snowy. But it is a ways off yet, so things may change.
2nd coldest end to November and start to December ever recorded:
I almost forgot to mention! We have set a few cold records over the weekend. Data here.
Saturday November 29th: -7.5º C was the third coldest temperature for November 29th since 1900. #1 was -17.0º C at Robertson and #2 was -16.8º C at Somass both in 1985. So this was the 2nd coldest November 29th ever recorded.
Sunday November 30th: -9.6ºC was the third coldest November 29th since 1900. #1 was -15.6º C at Somass and #2 was -13.5º C at Robertson both in 1985. So this was the 2nd coldest November 30th ever recorded.
Monday December 1st: -7.9º C was the third coldest November 29th since 1900. #1 was -15.5º C at Robertson and #2 was -14.8º C at Somass both in 1985. So this was the 2nd coldest December 1st ever recorded.
Network and Renos moving along – Data and Webcams back online.
You likely noticed that the webcam hadn’t been online for a number of days and that the conditions were being interrupted.
That should be all done now. Here is a look at how things have changed in the depts of the Alberniweather HQ basement.
Still a lot more wiring to do to fill in all the ports and put the faceplates on. Will be shortening a lot of unnecessarily long cables. Also need a lot more twist ties to make it all clean and professional. But it is a massive improvement. If you are wondering what the gear is, from top to bottom:
- Telus Optik router
- Apple Airport Express Wireless base station
- Network switches
- 2004 Apple Mac Mini (dedicated to running the Webcams – the red and blue wires coming down from just above)
- Small UPS and power bars
Have a Great Monday all!
