+Anemometer not functioning from 0715 to 1150 on October 2; 0100 to 0755 October 6; 0305 - 0615 October 12

*EQUIPMENT CHANGE: Effective October 12 at 0915: Smaller less sensitive Wind Cups replaced the larger cups on the Anemometer.
Readings will show a reduction in the Average Wind Speed and Total Wind Run during times of intermittent low wind speeds 
compared to the previous readings. High Wind Speed should not be affected.

October 2007 with 15.65" of rain was the 4th wettest October on record 
and the most for October since 1988. October records began in 1983.
