We have a new weather station at Fairchild!

Thu, Oct 30, 2008 at 07:59:35 AM

With thanks to the generosity of Caroline Lewis, Director of our education department, a weather station was purchased.  It was installed on the roof of the Garden House in mid-September.  The console with weather information obtained from the weather station is in the Hawke's Lab.  The station keeps records on rainfall, temperature, wind speeds, relative humidity, barometric pressure and other weather data.  In the future we will place this information on the FTBG website. 

You might be interested in some recent data collected by the new weather station.  Since mid-September, FTBG has received 22.26 inches of rain.  During October, we received 14.84 inches of rain.  There will be an announcement when the weather station data is uploaded onto our website.
