Greenwich Weather Station

I am, apparently, not the only afficionado of the lovely Maplin in Charlton, which always has that weird little battery that no one else sells (and helpful assistants that tell you the cheapest way to buy said battery is to get the mini torch on special offer and use the batteries out of that) a roll-up keyboard, peculiar burglar alarm spares and disco lights.  I mean – no household is complete without a fog machine.

Julian agrees. He’d always wanted a wireless weather station – and who wouldn’t – and when he saw that Maplin are doing them half price, he snapped one up. Add a spot of free webspace and Trinity Grove Weather was born. It’s simple stuff, but rather fascinating…

The photo, by the way, is by Kathy, when she got up to find out what last week’s cable ship was called…

    What a great idea. I still miss the Cutty Sark Webcam. Wish there was something like that again. Maybe someone could find out who to contact at the Royal Observatory and get one on the Camera Obscura….how cool would that be?
    Or even one on top of the Foot Tunnel with a 360 sweep every 10 mins….for example….LOL
    Now if I win the lottery this week and manage to buy a property over looking the river/Cutty Sark I promise to set one up……Do you think that will increase my chances? Thought not….!!!

    PS I thought it was only me that lived in Maplins.
    Wonder if they have any jobs going?????
