The heat is on here in the northeast, and soon you'll be needing a little more humidity in dry winter indoor air. We like this adorable Crane Cool Mist Humidifier, as it provides additional comfort to cold symptoms, dry itchy skin, and chapped lips during the winter months. The whisper quiet humidifier operates on a low power consumption providing up to 11 hours of moisture from a removable one gallon water tank. Includes an automatic shut off safety feature when water tank is empty.

We've reviewed a competing weather projection clock from Honeywell and loved it, but we think this sleek black weather clock from Oregeon Scientific looks solid as well.

Keeping a baby's room at the right temperature can mean the difference between life and death of an infant. Room temperature is vital in creating a safe sleeping environment for your baby and should be maintained at 61-67°F to help reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
The grobag® egg™ glows yellow if the room temperature is within recommended guidelines (61-67°F). If the room temperature is outside this range, the grobag® egg™ acts as a visual reminder for you to take action to cool or heat the room, or to adjust the baby's bedding or clothing.
Grobag Egg is available from Keen Distribution for USD $29.99.

There's so many options when it comes to alarm clocks, but after a few weeks of use we think the Honeywell Atomic Projection Clock with indoor temperature is the only option for the Weather Snob. At night you can see the time projected on your ceiling, wall, or wherever you want to have it, and the PCR201W Atomic Projection Clock has a large time display which is easy to see by itself.
We found the setting of the time atomically to just work, and the indoor thermometer was very accurate. The display also features Moon Phases (8), has an amber backlight. Okay - so what about the alarm clock? It has a dual crescendo alarm with 5-minute snooze that got us going each morning.
We really like the Honeywell PCR201W Atomic Projection Clock with Temperature, and we think for the indoor alarm and temperature enthusiast you can't do any better.

The Honeywell TM005X Wireless Thermo-Hygrometer is an easy-to-read and economical way to track temperature and humidity in your home or office. Featuring a jumbo display unit with one-inch tall digital numbers, the silver and black unit can monitor up to three remote locations. The TM005X comes with one remote sensor, but two additional sensors can be purchased separately and added.
Having purchased similar units ourselves, we do recommend getting a few sensors so you can put one in your basement, attic, or other locations.

We've been using this personal weather forecaster around the house, and on various motorcycle rides throughout New England this Fall. In a nut shell - the unit is roughly the size of a cell phone, and provides a 12 to 24 hour forecast and local temperature and humidity readings. The forecaster also doubles as a travel alarm clock with a crescendo alarm and snooze function, and has a belt clip for trekking around.

One of the various uses we've found around the house is to get a humidity and temperature reading wherever we put it. Just yesterday we used it to find several drafty spots in our basement that needed caulking. On our motorcycle trips, we used it to see if the pressure was trending down and if rain was on its way. Overall, we think this is a very cool - very small - personal weather monitor for where you are at any time.

I've always wanted one of these glass thermometers. Recently, I saw one in the home of a neighbor, and was immediately struck by how cool they are. Galileo Thermometers are magnificent creations that make Galileo's 400 year old principle of relative density a functional reality. An accurate indoor thermometer encased in brilliant glass, the Galileo is the point at which art meets science. Each of the liquid-filled floats weighs exactly.006 grams more than the one above it in the cylinder to ensure a stately and orderly procession of ups and downs as the temperature changes.
