After getting some very remote and elusive stations in the past two weeks, I’m left with just three stations to go in California for my www.surfacestations.org project: Blythe, Brawley, and Santa Cruz.
I recently surveyed Death Valley, Cedarville, and San Luis Obispo Cal Poly during my travels. Death Valley was surprising, Cedarville was surprising, and San Luis Obispo Cal Poly – well lets just say just like the scientists at University of Arizona Tucson, with the station in the parking lot, the ones at Cal Poly should know better too. It was my second trip to Cal Poly because on the first trip I found three weather stations, none of which were the USHCN station.
I was able to do Livermore, Tejon Rancho, and Needles with the help of NWS B44 forms with sketches, COOP pictures, and closeup satellite imagery. More on all of these in subsequent posts.
In other news, surveys still are coming in around the USA, I expect we’ll pick up the pace as people travel for the holidays. I’m already getting requests for help in locating stations.
Look for a large update on www.surfacestations.org front page soon.
