Weather Station Installation

The weather station is mounted in a variety of locations.  The wind mast and rain sensor are attached to the top of the chimney, about 30' up.  The outside thermometer and hygrometer are located in the back yard, attached to the trunk of a tree.  The barometer is in the living room.  The weatherCam is on the windowsill in the loft, pointing mostly south-southwest (except when it gets bumped).
