  1. Hey Chris.. just tipped 1000mm of precip (includes snowmelt) on my station….

    I would really love to put a internet connected station out at Henderson lake… 🙂

  2. Nice!

    Ya I think I hit about 1300mm before it reset on Oct 1.

    Henderson Lake would be awesome! 😀 Even just Prince Rupert or Bella Bella would be fun to watch.

  3. I had the adventure (or was that mis-adventure?) of a trip over to the hatchery to re-align their satellite dish. It _WAS_ nice here, but it wasn’t nice there. It was quite the challenge to get a satellite dish to pass Cross-Polarization when its miserable out.

  4. The beauty of web cams! We can actually believe it’s wet. I like the idea of a measuring device at Henderson Lake connected to the net. It would be grist for a fabulous bookmaking operation, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly totals–hell, we could even make book on hourly or minute totals, sort of like a Keno screen in the sports bars. Move over, Texas Hold ‘Em!

  5. They have a standard Environment Canada rain guage for manual recording.

    I’m sure the crew out there would enjoy some automation. So you don’t have to go outside and get wet.
