I was just outside checking our rain gauge with my mom. I really like the fact that even with high-tech equipment and radar systems to help predict and measure the weather there are also simple and easy ways to record weather. The rain gauge was so much fun that my mom and I are going to make an anemometer to put outside, too.
You can find out more about anemometers and what they do in the “Connections” section.
Animals probably would not appreciate the weather forecast as much as people do, but they don’t really need anyone to tell them what the weather will be. Animals have other ways of sensing that big changes are about to happen. Can you imagine having a built-in storm sensor?
Read more about how this works in the “Wildville” section.
What is your favorite kind of weather?
I love to curl up on the couch with a good book on a cold, rainy, day but nothing beats a walk outside in the warm sunshine!
