Weather Station

Post by American Pie » Mon May 08, 2017 10:41 pm

Anyone know whats has happened to the link to the CVO Weather Station? - Thought it was great to be able to check the current weather & temperature in CVO. When you now click on the link to the WS it just shows a direct link to the station that is not working.

they should paint the eyesore !

at least make it look like a lighthouse or something.. even white with blue stripes, like a water tower would be ok, or a rock type colour to help it blend in -
anything but that grey concrete monstrosity...

The weather station is on the school roof I think you are mixing it up with the radio beacon.

At least now you have three possible solutions as to what it is. Apart from an eyesore. 8)

Newly painted water tower up at Semarias looking good! Loved the fact painters were abseiling down the tower paint roller in hand!!!
