Vacation Time: Vista House Sensor Dies

February 25, 2014

As mentioned in the post last Thursday, I’m on vacation for a week. But I was just checking out the strong wind in the Gorge. Looks like Corbett gusted to 77 mph early today. So I went to the Vista House sensor. It may have physically broken, or is beating itself against the side of the building. It was gusting in the 70-80 mph range and then has mostly gone dead with just occasional gusts. It lived a good life though. Made it through 3 winters! That’s all. I’ll be back online Thursday. One more day of this
