Wind Over My Station650 viewsTaken 1/23/06
Strong winds buffeted Southern California last night and this morning causing wide spread damage. Fallen trees, downed power lines, etc. Sustained winds at my station were 30 mph with gusts as high as 42 mph. Combined with extremely low humidity, these conditions have prompted a Red Flag Fire Alert. Here, the wind is bending over the tree in my front yard with my Weather Station s Anemometer and Rain Bucket in the foreground.

Skeleton640 viewsLarge birds had access to the RF Rooms via the Feed Tubes for quite some time. The rooms were littered with their droppings, as well as the carcasses and skeletons of their prey.

After the RF Room was cleaned, the Feed Tube was sealed to keep the birds out.
