The other event yesterday was the arrival of the UPS man with the new weather station.
Looks simple enough sitting in the box.
Became a bit more of a challenge trying to assemble the parts when there were no written instructions, just some vague pictures that must have been perfectly clear to the Chinese fellow who took them for my benefit. I prevailed in assembling a reasonable representation of the picture on the box. The next challenge was and I quote "Insert two pieces of LR6 (AA size) batteries into the transmitter". Not know which pieces they wanted installed I went on and inserted the entire batteries. Needless to say following instructions written in China by someone who has a semester of English under their belt left me scratching my head the rest of the afternoon as I proceeded with the setup, but I did prevail and the weather station is in operation.
This afternoon has been reserved for doing nothing and I had better get started. Always geared up to enjoy the good life, though.
