I'm Steve, from Avon, Ohio

Hello fellow WeatherCat users!

I'm Steve, and I live in Avon, Ohio. Deb and I retired in the spring of 2010, and we decided we have enough time now that we wanted to know more about what's happening in our garden. After many years of using various manual and digital rain gauges, barometers, in/out thermometers, handheld anemometers, etc., we bought our first "serious" weather station last September.

Aside from gardening and learning more about our weather, we also bicycle around town, ride scooter, have an old MG, enjoy photography, hike/walk several times a week, and more. So knowng more about the weather fits right in with our lifestyle.

Here's our weather station:

Here's our garden as of last summer:
