We are expecting a power cut today due to overhead cable repairs, and if it continues for more than a few hours then the computer that updates the web site will shut down. Things should be back to normal by the end of this afternoon.
Update 1210 – The weather station PC has shut down, so weather data on the site won’t be updated until power is restored (later today, we hope).
Update 1620 – Power back on and site being updated.
Our first sighting this afternoon – so it is Spring! 🙂
The weather station is running fine, but unfortunately the ftp server isn’t and the weather page hasn’t been updated for a couple of hours. The web hosting company has been told, and we’re waiting for them to fix it.
For what it’s worth, we’ve had some light and rather wet snow – there is a thin cover on the ground.
Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
It’s 11.30pm and it looks as if we’re up and running again – the weather station is back online. Apologies for the break in service, and thanks to the engineers who have no doubt spent a few cold hours wallowing in the mud to put things right!
Western Power’s estimate for restoring power has moved on to 1am on Tuesday 6th November. Time for bed, I think. We’ll hope to have the weather station back on line in the morning.
The latest estimate from Western Power for restoration of supply is now 10pm – fingers crossed.
