Our weather here in the middle of Texas is constantly changing. The weatherman have very little chance of getting it right everyday. I have a memory of going to school in the morning and it was 80 degrees. By 10:00 we were sent home because it was snowing. Needless to say I have been on a quest to find a better weatherman ever since.I think I have found the perfect solution. AcuRite is a wonderful company that sells amazingly accurate weather stations for home use. The one I received is super easy to install and really simple to use. It has a large digital display that is so self explanatory even those with no technological expertise can tell the forecast and weather with ease. It has been really nice to know the wind speed as well as wind chill before I go outside to feed the animals. No more walking out the front door and getting surprised by a chill ya to the bone breeze. I love my weather station and think these are great gift ideas.
