Weather Warfare - Win Wars with Weather

WEATHER WARFARE: The Military's Plan to Draft Mother Nature is not "conspiracy theory." This book has almost no theory and very little speculation. All the conclusions reached are the logical ones based on the presented facts. This is not "tabloid journalism." This is straight scientific reporting at a layman's level. Jerry Smith presents solid evidence from military and scientific sources that intentional environmental modification (EnMod) is the 600-pound gorilla at the global warming debate that everyone is pretending isn't there. Is it? Read on...

Winter Weather Weapons - The Sno-Baller

I always wanted one of these winter weather weapons. Instead, I had frozen mittens and cold hands from packing snowballs over and over. It'll cost you $8.95, to get sno-ballin this winter, but we think you'll like the results. We picked one up and so far we haven't lost any snow wars.

Weather In A Bottle - Stormglass Weather Predicting Instruments

The Stormglass is a bottle full of liquid designed to forecast the weather. The changes in the atmosphere ahead of on-coming weather fronts cause different crystals to grow in the liquid. Each type of crystal predicts a different type of weather – on average, two days in advance. Discovered hundreds of years ago by the early alchemists, the Stormglass was soon adopted by seafarers in particular because of its uncanny ability to predict storms.

You may choose to monitor your Weather In A Bottle Stormglass and let it bring you a new awareness of our everchanging environment, or you may choose just to admire it for the sheer beauty of its constantly evolving crystal formations. We think the former is the way to go - better be on top of the weather than underneath it.

10 Wacky Weather Forecasting Gadgets

PC Magazine has a pretty good article on wacky weather gadgets. We think their choices are pretty good - given they aren't weather obsessed and more PC focused. They feature a weather fridge, weather station, and yes even the Melitta weather station coffee center.

The big thing to remember - if you want to know the temperature, the general weather conditions, and other weather info - you're going to need to get your weather info in a variety of places throughout your house. We have weather gadgets near the front door - in our bedroom, and in places where we want to know temperature and humidity. Many of the devices in the article will fit those places quite nicely.
