Found this in my first time around the field this morning.

The parachute is orange and the baloon, what is left of it is the whiteish thing at the top.

The payload

Notice how dry it is here , normally this is a very wet part of the field.

This is the 5th one of these I have found over the years. The styles have changed, I have put notes in the returned ones asking details and have always just got back a generic answer letter. Glad to see they finally put where it came from and date.

Nothing like a harmless weather instrument, must be using hydrogen as the lifting agent. Notice we can probably take that massive heavy ONE inch rain we are supposed to get.

Re: Tid Bits

Seems to have fixed the drought here in South Podunk Country Iowa in one day.

 

This is the system that western Kansas needs.

 

Still reminds me that the last two years as soon as I was done with nh 3 we got a flood, will this be number 3?  Been raining all afternoon. The bottoms now have a full tank of moisture.

 

No early planting here on the Hobby acreage. Water pouring off the roof as I post this.

 

South Podunk Country Iowa.  The land of extremes.
