Maintenance Updates CW6777 12/29

The Vantage Vue station at Jesse's house has been leaning at a 15-degree angle for most of this December (this data is not available online). This would have also affected the NetAtmo rain gauge which is at the same location (on Quail Run Road).

Around 5 PM tonight it was restored to approximately level and tied that way for the duration of the winter. Historical webcam views of this station can be found on the WeatherWatchers.Org website.
