Chat with expert was cancelled due to tornado!


#1

So, I posted this new thing about chat with experts but I didn’t tell the guys at GHI about it yet. Then we got hit by a small buy very annoying tornado last night so we things got somewhat lost.

I hope the next schedule will be better and with no tornado!

Here is a picture that you will find interesting. This is the neighbor’s next door.

This is the hail after about 2 hours so this is melted…it was even bigger


#3

lol…no comments!


#4

Wow, no problem Gus! We were happily chatting and we guessed that was the situation. Hope everything is ok.


#5

last one…the hail was flying in so strong, it scraped the pain off!!! :o


#6

Eek! Brings back memories of Ike coming through here in Houston. Had a large maple tree that took out our fence. We had a Mimosa tree that seemed to be in worse condition but it prevailed throught the storm. I had a DS1923 clipped onto it to record the temperature and humidity. It survived as well and lived to tell some interesting data.


#7

Has anyone developed a weather station with the FEZ product line yet? Seal it up in a “black box” and leave it in the path of a tornado?


#8

Wow. That is pretty terrifying. Glad you are alright.
We will reschedule the chat, no problem :wink:


#9

I have a weather reader, it doesn’t record weather though!


#10

I thought you may want to see my gazebo! :dance:


#11

That’s a very nice gazebo you have there, Gus! :o


#12

That sounds not good :frowning:

I have seen tornados only in tv shows about the “tornado alley”

GHI should think about a FEZ Cobra equipped weather radar and FEZ Mini equipped sensors for tracking of tornado data :dance:


#13

Of all the lame excuses ;D

Seriously, glad everyone is OK.


#14

Hum… Do you suppose that we could release little weather sensors into the path of a tornado to take readings, like they did in the movie twister? the fez mini + gps + sd card + nordic radio and assorted sensors might just be good for that.

I wonder what’s the practicality.

You could however make a solar powered small weather station (or even put it on a helium ballon since it’s so small and cheap).

Nice Idea dude!


#15

Those of you who were following the chat might have remembered how I was in the middle of a rather scary storm. Well, it looks like it’s back again. This time with full on tornado warnings. ::slight_smile:


#16

See you on the other side of the storm dude. Good luck, and protect that Fez…
