This is most interesting to me. I am addicted to the weather. I have even thought about setting up a real weather station in our garden area. I love the look of your chart. It is almost a work of art. I am afraid I wouldn't follow through with this. I look at Weatherunderground for this information.They have the type of chart you made for temperature/dew point, wind etc. They base their information taken from the little airport that is almost 9 miles from our house and it is out on a prairie. Our temps, rainfalls etc are sometimes vastly different.

Your post has set off a spate of investigation as to where a closer weather station might be. I mentioned your post and showed my Dearly Beloved your graph which set him off on his computer. He found a weather station just 2.5 miles from our house on our side of the river. Whooo hooo... This makes me happy. I still don't know if I have the stick-to-itness to make such a beautiful chart as you did. I could look at it as a winter project. I am obviously trying to talk myself into doing this. ha...

Lisa — ​I did that chart the spring that my newspaper was downsizing and I took a buyout. So I was trying to keep busy and take my mind off of an unexpected early retirement. It was a lot of fun to do, if a bit obsessive. We got a temperature gauge that has two stations for two locations but we haven't really used it much yet. I need to figure it out which I have not done.


It's a grand idea which you carried out very well. I'd probably forget a few days and then scrap the whole thing. Good for you for sticking with it for so long!

​Peter — once I got enough temps to suddenly start seeing the swings of highs and lows, it really kept me interested to keep it up.

Oh I LOVE this! I'd like to think I would keep with it. Hmm...

You have so much stick-to-itness, Linda. I admire your many interests, your perseverance and your willingness to share with us, though now I find I have to go take a nap.

What a great idea! Yes, I am obsessed with weather, too--as you say, common among gardeners. Gosh, that must have been a chilly spring--those are the highs, correct? That means we must have had several lows below freezing in May, which does happen some years and makes me frown. ;-)

Beth - ​If you double click on the image to blow it up you can see the dots at the top are the high temps each day and then the lows are also marked. But the zig zag graph lines just connect the daily high temps.​
