No we're not in a bad mood, but we are negative. Negative in temperature. The official temperature on our fancy digital thermometer (the Weather Direct Wireless Forecaster) was -0.4 degrees this morning, our first official negative temperature of the year. And I will bet you every penny I have (Full Disclosure - I don't have many) that it won't be the last, or the lowest. Any takers on that bet?
The Weather Direct Wireless Forecaster was a birthday gift from Alycia last year and is pretty dang cool. I love watching the weather, checking Doppler radar, and anticipating the forecast for the future, so a digital thermometer and weather forecaster was right up my alley. We have the traditional round plastic thermometer hanging from a tree in the back yard, but it always seems to be off by about 10 degrees. I think the tree trunk obscures air from getting to the sensor or something. The fancy digital thermometer uses a sensor mounted on the North side of the house, just under the eaves, and seems to be pretty precise.
