Who else loves barometers and weather stations? smile Mine has -

- Pressure (hPa) mercury rising or falling
- Temperature
- Hygrometer (measures the moisture contect in the atmosphere)
- An Admiral Fitzroy Stormglass (which shows little flakes in stormy weather and is clear in sunny weather - love it)

Does your barometer (or other) work? Would love to see stories and photos....

Me, and I adore the shipping forecast. There's something v warm and snuggly about lying in bed, all tucked up with a cup of coffee, listening to it. So melodic and soothing.

Here is a photo of my barometer. The hygrometer was high last night even though we are nowhere near Scotland.

The Shipping Forecast is lovely. This book is really enjoyable.

I have a barometer by the back door.

I like to give it a little tap when I let the chickens out in the morning!

I love the idea of the storm glass...

I am so getting these when the extension is finished

The stormglass may not be the most accurate way of predicting temperature but I think it is the prettiest. smile Watch this...(fast forward to the time lapse at the end).
