Hi everybody, No snow here in MN since Dec. 30. In fact, it's almost gone due to the warm weather. If it stays this way it'll be fine with me. Temps are supposed to be 40 again today. Unreal for January.

By Seismic Pirate (Marc) on Sunday, January 15, 2006 - 01:09 pm:

Not a good start. I just woke up 40 mins late for shift change. Pulled another 18 hr shift, yesterday, and got sunburned, AGAIN, running on the helideck. Good news is ony nine days left and next trip will be in nothern Australia:)

The wind's a blowin' down here and it's 68. Can't decide if it will snow or not.

By Seismic Pirate (Marc) on Sunday, January 15, 2006 - 03:52 pm:

Very sunny, 90-95 deg's here in Myanmar, every single day. No snow, yet... :)

Here in Painesdale, it snowed off and on for most of the day. I won't know the exact amount until tomorrow morning when I venture out to the weather station but I guess we received about 2" of snow today. Funny thing, is the temperature is getting warmer. Started the day at 24 degrees and at 6Pm it is 30degrees. Been a crazy winter. The snowmobilers and ice fishermen in my house are whining.

By Seismic Pirate (Marc) on Sunday, January 15, 2006 - 06:07 pm:

I'd be whining, too, If I was home. These days I'm whining about my sunburn.
I heard there was a weather station in Painesdale. Are you the one who maintians it? Is the station one of the COOP's listed @ NOAA Marquette?

By dlp (Babyseal) on Sunday, January 15, 2006 - 06:25 pm:

Yes, I have been trying to get the information needed to plug in the daily totals on their website. There has been a changeover in staff there so it's taking longer. We have been gathering weather information for the NWS for about five years now. Actually have records since early 50 or 60's. My son started recording when his elderly friend died. The reports get sent to Jan Tucker for her radio program in Ontonagon, The Daily Mining Gazette as well as the NWS in Marquette. The whole family pitches in. It's fun. Except at 7Am when the snow is up to your arse and fills your boots, and I end up goign to work with wet feet ;)

By anna swiniuchowski (Abswini) on Sunday, January 15, 2006 - 07:16 pm:

Well, woke up to howling winds, 30 to 40 mph gusts, wind blowing icy snow in crazy swirls, 4" of icy crusty stuff, car doors iced shut. tarp off the firewood now all icy and snowy, no desire to shovel as it would be more like chipping, with my face getting frost bitten. it was in the 60's for the past three days too. life in New Jersey. who would have thought. And it will be 58 again by wednesday.

By Seismic Pirate (Marc) on Sunday, January 15, 2006 - 08:11 pm:

That is very cool family project, maintaining a weather station! There's a small one at the KBIC Hatchery where I used to work and for a time, i was trying to get the Tribal College to install another they recieved from a grant. From that and needing accurate barometric pressure readings for a water sampling meter, I had occasion to talk to the folks in Mqt and I believe that's where I heard about your station, but I don't think I ever saw Painesdale info on their website.
Btw, where is the station?

By RCW (Rcw) on Sunday, January 15, 2006 - 09:14 pm:

DIP (babyseal) I wonder would you mind posting the station frequency that Jan is brodcasting on at present. My wife really would like to be able to tune her in again . Thanks RCW

RCW-you've got that right. I once asked for the name and number of the florist in Houghton and managed to have flowers sent to my wife the same day, while I was sailing the North Sea, off Norway-courtesy of Cam Notes:)

The weather station is in our back yard. That is where the NWS placed and marked it with GPS. We don't do barometric readings. Just measure the rain and snowfall daily, snowfall depth on the ground, record the temperature at the rime of the readings. In the spring the NWS will call and ask for readings of the amount of water content in the snow. I guess that is used for gauging flood conditions or something to that effect. That one the boys have to do as I don't have the arm strength. It's been interesting.
