Then Again…

February 26th, 2014

Then again, as of this afternoon, it seems all is pretty much somewhat normal.  SB is maybe even stronger than usual – as the low has not quite arrived.  Maybe any variations last night/early this morning were merely a directional type of influence.  .


Choatic and Weakened

February 26th, 2014

I went out and about this early AM, the signals were chaotic and definitely weakened.  This is maybe to be expected with the approaching low pressure storms – as reported on weather reports.  Not sure how it all compares with the current pressure readings, however (30.05, steady/falling).   I am looking forward to taking snapshots over the next few days as the two storms arrive onshore.

Strong Again.

February 21st, 2014

SD has been really clear today and this evening.  Given the slow moving/stalled high pressure system that finally seems to be moving-on of late, maybe I should have given more credence to the relatively weakened signals during the last few days.  Maybe I need to go on to raise some money for a permanent data acquisition system to measure and compare passing signal strengths.  In actuality, I think any monitoring equipment may not be as expensive as securing a good location to station the equipment for use.

It could be that the system that struck in the Heartland today/yesterday did not come ashore here, of course.  But from the weather map, it looks as though it could have.
