I’ve always been amazed by the weather and truth be told knowing what the weather can be pretty important when planning day to day tasks. Sure you could listen to the weather report on the news but believe me, its way more fun to have your very own weather station at home. I bought a cheap one ages ago and while it lasted it was a great gadget. Unfortunately the outside monitor stopped working after awhile and now I only have the inside unit, not so much fun.  :waiting:

That’s why I took the time to source another one that looks really good, especially from all the great reviews it’s been getting from all the satisfied customers. Great selling points are the ease of setting it up, at least for most people, and the data displayed. Most guys would love this baby.
