Chaney Instrument Oak Finished Weather Station - Classy Weather


We love the classic weather station, and think this one will look right at home in your living room or den. Finished with a warm oak stain, this wooden weather station features a thermometer, barometer and hygrometer. The unit hangs vertically or horizontally to dress up any wall. The luxurious, handcrafted Tahoe Oak finish emphasizes brass bezels for a striking affect. A handsome black band sets off the brass bezels while graceful, black hands stand out against an off-white dial face. Arabic numerals are easy to read from across the room. Temperature is displayed in Fahrenheit and Celsius. Backed by a five-year, manufacturer warranty, this 14-inch-tall station is precision-engineered for accurate weather data.

Got $80,000? You Can Buy SimpleWeather Web Site


Mashable is reporting SimpleWeather - a site that lets you simply enter your zip code and get the weather is up for sale. 80k? We'll take 80k in money - right now. :-) Too bad, it's tough to see the economic downturn effect smaller sites, and these sites have to sell out for money. Or is it?

SimpleWeather, a nifty web site which brings you weather information when you enter a zip code or city name into a simple form, is for sale. We’ve mentioned the site in our big list of sites that provide you with weather info, and it has been mentioned on other prominent sites as well, most notably on one of Time’s “25 websites you can’t live without” lists.

The site is currently defunct, redirecting to; it is due to a $6000 debt to its data provider, The owners are asking 80,000 dollars for ownership of the site, source code, backend and some additional domain names.

WindMate 200 - Measure the Wind


We're always on the look out for a new wind meter to keep track of those windy walks. That's right - on our walks each day when it's windy, it's always a bit interesting to see how fast the wind is blowing. The Windmate 200 has an internal "wind vane" which ensures all readings are on the wind's axis, and the sure-grip, jack knife-style case keeps hands away from affecting sensors. Backlit screen shows digital direction in degrees/compass points; cross/head/tail wind readings; wind chill; temperature. Lanyard and carry case included.

Every part of the text has been examined and updated to ensure currency and clarity.Integrating the classic textbook model with emerging areas of instructional technology, this book focuses on explaining, rather than describing, the processes that produce Earth's weather and climate. The authors encourage a non-mathematical understanding of physical principles as a vehicle for learning about atmospheric processes.

Yesterday's Weather - Perfect Weather Reading


This book isn't meteorology focused, but we think you'll find this book about the crazy changing times in modern Ireland very interesting. We really liked this book and think you will too, especially the shear variety of "weather" like tales, and how they effect peoples lives.

Winner of the 2007 Man Booker Prize, Anne Enright's novel The Gathering went on to become a national best seller acclaimed for its electrifying prose and haunting emotional resonance. Now, in Yesterday's Weather, Enright presents a series of deeply moving glimpses into a rapidly changing Ireland: a land of family and tradition, but also, increasingly, of organic radicchio, cruise-ship vacations, and casual betrayals. An artisan farmer seethes at the patronage of a former Catholic-school classmate, now a successful restaurateur; a bride cuckolds her rich husband with an old college friend--a madman who won't take his pills, disappears for weeks at a time, and plays the piano like a dream. Still more startling than loss or deception are the ways in which people respond to them: a wife eaten up by rage at her husband's infidelity must weigh the real stakes after his affair takes a tragic turn; confronted with a similar situation, a woman decides to cheat with, rather than against, her man. Sharp, tender, never predictable, the sum of these stories is a rich tapestry of people struggling to find contentment with one another--and with themselves.
