Feedback from users of my weather page
I appreciate your comments and please feel free to email me at darragh@ihug.co.nz

We are avid followers of your website since moving to Makawera last September. 
I was just wondering if you had an average annual rainfall for the area and if we are having a wet year this year compared to others?
Thanks so much for all the effort that you must put into your site we really appreciate it!

Hello Glen 

My name is Marten Reitsma. I live close to you in Grasmere Invercargill.
I purchased a La Crosse WS2305 a few months ago. It is up and running
but I am not sure if I have postioned the main unit in the best place.
Seems to me that the Barometric Pressure is not accurate - mine reads
997.1 while yours reads 979 (at 1pm). Attached is a picture of where it
is position. I was hoping you could give me some advice.


Hi Glen.

excellent weather page. In used to live in Invercargill and also some time in Makarewa. I now live in Wellington with the almost constant northerly.

I found your excellent website while looking for weather station equipment for a son in law for Christmas.

He is a farm manager near Geraldine and asked me if I could get him something for the farm.
Dick Smith only have simple gear at the moment and then they will have to order it in.
Southland Electronics have nothing so I started looking on the web.
Can you suggest some resonable equipment that I could buy, I probably would not want to spend over $500 but I can always add extra sensors at a later date.
