Sorry for the absence lately, my brother and sister-in-laws have been blessed with a new baby girl named Hailey! So that has both been very exciting and very time consuming! All is well though and both the new parents and the new baby are extremely well.

More good news to pass along… after a bit of a delay the folks doing research on the Stamp River that will be providing me (you!) with a Solar Radiation sensor are in town and getting about the business of installing all their gear. That should mean that you will see Solar and UV readings on the website as soon as next week.

Hooray for New Stuff, and (little) People!
