Anemometer Issues
~ Lost readings from my anemometer twice during the month although it has come back on occasions for short periods.
Thus this month only contains 15 days worth of data for wind.
Recent Additions to Statistics List
~ I Created a 'Spurious Rainfall Data' file for logging rogue tips from my rain gauge that occur after 9am when no rain is
or has fallen. Tips before 9am when no rain has fallen would be attributed to dew, this means that the precipitation
amount is added to rainfall totals but it would not be recorded as a rain day.
~ Created a batch file for duplicating files & placing the copy in a separate location with the time & date the backup
took place added to the end of the file name. This is used in conjunction with 'Windows Scheduler' to have valuable
files backed up at regular intervals. Many thanks to those from the 'Weatherzone Forums' for their help with this one!
