An attempt to capture the current weather station data for archiving on my website.

The Agriculture Forestry and Economic Development branch of the Government of Alberta maintains a bunch of weather stations. One of these sits outside Wimborne. It is almost as good as a home based weather station.

I enquired to the person who does the programming for the data. Is there an easy way to post the data to my website? No.

So I am forced to take screenshots of the data page and post them randomly.

I really wish the data was open and accessible [ see https://open.alberta.ca/opendata ]. After all the data is generated with our tax dollars.

At the expense of looking like a tourist I took these 3 photos showing one small, little, lonely Maple tree most likely overlooked by the hordes of park visitors wanting to shoot “fall colours”. Male maple tree leaves turn red (shown) while female leaves turn bright orange-yellow but check these facts – I’m not a botonist.


All photos of the same tree.
