Rufus,

That is very flattering of you to say! I have really been enjoying finding lots of lovely things to photograph with my new camera.

Nancy, it has been wonderful camping on Jeremy’s plot—such fresh, fragrant air and beautiful scenery.

Travis, I have been so grateful for how hard everyone is working on the Abbey—we are all learning a lot, and everyone has really been going the extra mile for my sake. It will be wonderful to live surrounded by reminders of my friends and our time together.

More work at the Abbey today.

After talking with Paul, we have decided to focus on temperature (rather than rainfall, wind speed, humidity, etc.) as the only variable to measure during the ATI test this winter.

We would like a weather station that can take measurements in four locations—outside the Abbey, on the exterior wall, on the interior wall, and in the middle of the living space.

We would also like it to enable us to compile, visualize, and share the temperature data, and to take measurements and transmit data without having to physically go outside and plug anything in or push any buttons.

Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

(Day 9)

Yes, of course, and I accept that blame. In fact, i covet that blame. As does this tiny ad:
