At the beginning of January this year I posted my temperature charts that I had put together in Excel indicating the high, low, and median temperatures by day for 2021. While they were pretty, they were just there on the page. I've seen people use the daily temperatures to make very colorful quilts - either sewn, crocheted, or knitted. I've also seen some elaborate needlework projects that use preprinted backgrounds - something I might look into for the future. But I kept thinking on what I could do that would give me something 3-D to show the history of our temperatures here in Branchburg for the year.
In 2021 I had relied on a site that was nearby for my temperature readings. I couldn't rely on our indoor/outdoor thermometer because we typically go away for the weekends in the summer and there was no way to read it when we weren't here. I had a found a website for a weather station nearby that did have a history mode and used that one, but I felt that it really wasn't true to our home site as there were days when there was enough of a difference in their reading and our home reading that would cause the chart to show a different color. So I did some investigating and found a weather station that we could install and hook up to the internet and it can be monitored from anywhere. We named our location "Bluebird Hill" because HWNSNBP installed it up the hill on the rail of the pool deck near to the bluebird nesting box. And while I do still keep an Excel sheet of the temps, I don't need to rely on a formula to give me the median temperature because I get a historical reading of high, low, and average for the day ....... well let me show you what yesterday looked like.
