Weather Chases
~ Wed 7 - Thunderstorms in the Hunter E of Muswellbrook. Only encountered brief moderate rain on our 390km journey.
Good day overall, though a little frustrating with the feeling of never really being in the right spot.
Instrument Alterations
~ On the 31st (Feb) AWS rain gauge is properly secured & levelled on it's post.
~ Also began work on my new Stevenson screen for the backyard.
