Rainy Days and Weekends

One of the items I most enjoy and depend on is my Oregon Scientific weather station, which measures the outdoor temperature and the amount of rainfall. It even keeps a tally of all the rain we have had since the last reset. Two days ago, it stopped working. Knowing that heavy rain was forecast, I went into stressed mode. I have a phone number for the company but, since it was Friday evening when the stoppage occurred, I knew that I could not call until Monday at noon (as they are on Pacific time). Of course the deluge arrived on time, and I watched as uncounted drops of rain made puddles in the yard. It is now Monday at noon, and I just called Oregon Scientific and talked with a technician. Because I’m heading out to lunch, I cannot try his suggested method until later, but he assured me that it will work. If not, I am to call the company again. How nice to have a company who has technicians who are available to talk with customers. I am most grateful, especially if my weather station is working again later this afternoon….and it was.
