Weather station

I first started using Cumulus about two and a half years ago and it was a wonderful addition to my, then, existing static website. I obtained a Fine Offset WH1080 set of sensors which was located on top of an aerial mast attached to the garden shed. The display console is plugged into a 24 hour running pc and sends out updates to PWS Weather, CWOP, Weatherbug, Weather Underground and WOW. for a long time I was trying to install a weather cam but without any luck. This was a disappointment as we have a rather excellent south facing view across open fields to the city of York approximately 4 miles away. In winter, with leafless trees, you get a clear view of York Minster. I was content with that for quite a while but then I stumbled upon Meteotemplate and it absolutely blew me away with all the fabulous options that are available. It came at exactly the right time as I had just switched broadband user, taking on Virgin cable when it was installed here in Wigginton and Haxby this year. My previous provider had given a limited amount of both static and CGI webspace but I found the latter to be completely baffling and the overall service was poor. Virgin do not provide any webspace at all(which is in itself appalling)but this actually did me a favour by pushing me into looking for a paid web hosting site. From there I ended up with 1&1 which has a comprehensive Control Panel, PHP scripting at 7.1 a loads of guidance. Goodbye Plusnet, hello Meteotemplate and hello to an expansive and dynamic web site which will be dedicated mostly to all aspects of weather and climatology, but will contain some interesting extras that I have put together myself. Now, where is that web cam going......
