My dad was always
fascinated by the weather. He just loved to keep tabs on the current
temperature, barometric pressure, and other weather stats - but he hated going
outside to read the gauges. What he needed was a wireless weather station!
Wireless weather stations didn't exist back then, but they do now - and at very
affordable prices. There are basic units like La Crosse Technology's WS-7034U that simply display the indoor and
outdoor temperatures, advanced models like the Rainwise MK III that give dozens of interesting weather
stats, and others that fall somewhere in between.
The beauty of a wireless weather station is there are no wires to run. You
simply install the batteries, then place the outside unit at a convenient
location outside your home and the indoor unit inside the house wherever you
want it. The sensors on the outdoor unit take the readings and a built-in radio
transmitter sends the data to the indoor unit in real time. It's really that simple!
The only downside to a wireless weather station is having to change the
batteries every once in a while, but the simple convenience of not having to run
any wires at all makes that small task very much worth it.
Yes, my dad would have loved having a wireless weather station to feed his
weather stats habit, but he couldn't get his hands on one. But you can, and for
a very reasonable price!
