A nice fine and cold February and early March here – lots of sunny weather with (possibly!) a record of 11 consecutive freezing nights in March!
In other weather related news: The battery in the VPII sensor unit gave out and, shock, panic, terror; we LOST some data!
TheCR-123 lithium battery lasted pretty much exactly 3 years as backup for the solar power, and luckily it was simple case of getting a replacement (as quick as possible!)
…but it’s a wonder if it’s just the dark winter days to blame for depleting the solar capacitors ability – or is it an underlying problem. Time will tell.
