Pay real close attention and sometimes you can read the difference between sleep post and awake post.

My wife says she actually likes the sleep post better. She says she never has to worry about it "going down in the middle of the party", whatever that means.

Shorty--I use my dog's tail position for weather forecasting. (When it's so far between her legs that it touches her chin, you better take cover!)
I can send videos to you if you'd like during severe weather.cool2

Hello shorty,
Whats the name and Model of your weather devices you are using and is it able to connect to your pc.

there are a lot of software's out there that do just as you need Most of them are bundled with ip cam software as well.

Depending on how your weather device records to your pc whether it be USB or a data logger.

I currently use a program called Weather Display to capture all of my data from my weather station and records all of the data to my pc and then uploads to my personal weather site. at http://wxflint.com

Let me know what you have and I might be able to help you in finding the correct software that meets your needs cool2
