    ? A Hail Storm gave us Norwich Union Insurance company
    ? A Sunny afternoon gave us ?Alice in Wonderland? & allegedly a Tory victory in the 1992 election
    ? A Blizzard gave us Elizabeth David?s Cookbooks
    ? Storms ? gave us the pencil / Norfolk Broads / the lifeboat & the weather forecast.

    Placing you Weather Station on the Web

    Most ISPs offer web space so you should have no difficulty uploading an active weather website, for all to see, but if not you can get Cumulus to upload your data to:
    ? PWS Personal Weather http://www.pwsweather.com/
    ? Weather Underground http://www.wunderground.com/
    ? Twitter twitter.com/
    ? The Met Office will be opening a special site for us to feed our data to later in the year http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/forms/weather_stations_form.html
