That's a rude way to describe Bendigonians ;)
PS Happy Hug A Climate Scientist Day!! Hope there's a lot of (non-surprise) hugging at AMOS!
I said dense observations, not observers :-).
Actually really impressed with the engagement the project has got - they had something like 350 people put themselves up as hosts for the 50 sites available. Jim applied for one but missed out, I think most likely because his place probably didn't have a good line of sight to the communications repeater. (One of the seriously cool things about this project is that the places which did and didn't have good lines of sight to the repeaters were mapped by putting sensors on the Council's garbage trucks).
And how much did todays rain event vary across the city. My sense is it was wetter to the west of town.
Wetter in Bickley (E) than Swanbourne (W)
How did that conversation veer into Perth?
Rainfall's not part of the project for now (although may be a future extension), only temperature and pressure - automated raingauges are a bit more complicated (=expensive) and harder to maintain because they involve moving parts.
because they involve moving parts
As opposed to Bendigonians?
Not much moving needed around here when it comes to getting to orienteering events.
