(1) As measured on Front Lawn 
(a) No Reading taken and until snow pack melts there will be none. The measurement area was damaged by snow from a snow blower
    being blown onto the area.

* 1/30: From 1655 to Midnight the Anemometer was impeded, don't think there was much more Wind Run than shown.

** 1/31: Wind Vane Frozen until 2050, Anemometer impeded until 2050. Wind Run however was probably not that much more because
it was a very still day until the latter part of the evening.
