Of course neither Don and Liz Healy or myself have any idea why there is a propane torch and spark lighter inside this thermometer shelter, or what they might be used for, but it seemed pretty comical, so I thought I’d share the photo. I’m continually amazed by the oddities that are found in the USHCN climate station network.
As far as the rest of the station photos go, its fairly typical. Not to far from a road and convenient parking on one side, and near agricultural operations on the other.
