At last, a reliable weather station
February 10, 2016 10:33am CST
I came across this sign outside the Topkapi Palace hotel in Lara Beach, Turkey. It is one of the most amusing signs that I have ever seen and I had to take a photograph of it. All too often I have seen weather reports on the television or the internet, which have been proven wrong simply by looking out of the window. This Weather Station may be less technical than most, but it does provide very accurate data. I checked it out while I was there by touching the rock hanging down from the left hand side, which was fairly hot at the time. According to the conversion data on the sign this represents sunshine, which was correct because it was sunny at the time. I was quite impressed and the system seems to be reliable.

Oh yes, it was very accurate. Amusingly we have weathermen who have studied the subject at University and then use computers with sophisticated software to analyse data from satellites orbiting the Earth, yet they are still less accurate or reliable than that rock.
