Hi all

Just to let you know Ive complete revamped my website: http://gulberwickweather.co.uk (http://gulberwickweather.co.uk)

Also, gulberwickweather.co.uk is now on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/pages/gulberwickweathercouk/313323595729?ref=nf (http://www.facebook.com/pages/gulberwickweathercouk/313323595729?ref=nf)

Next up - a webcam!

Also a question - is there an instrument available for LaCrosse weather stations that measures snow?

You mean something similar to what the rest of us use?

See if there's anything on the Hobby Boards (http://www.hobby-boards.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=22&osCsid=f985d6b6eb26ee8f5d96e5b1b3105a7c) website that may fit the bill. I know there's a leaf wetness sensor on there but you'll need to set this stuff up using 1-Wire, which will integrate into Weather Display alongside your main station.  ;)

I think there are people who have set up 1-wire snow depth devices using ultrasound ranging, etc., but I think it's a pretty much a case of sourcing the bits and building it yourself! The Hobby Boards Forum (http://www.cocoontech.com/forums/index.php?s=ac634c2a3c156de8293fd21e4ee99f1e&showforum=41) would be a good place to search.

Droll indeed ;D but some people really do use a variation on Martin's suggestion and have a "snow cam" pointing at a marked stick - but I think that is mainly in places that expect to see seriously large depths of snow on a regular basis (e.g. Norway).

...a "snow cam" pointing at a marked stick...
I've now remembered enough of a clue to help me find an example (http://monticelloweather.com/snowcam.htm).  :D
