South Fidalgo Station Signing Off

After 11 years of operation, the South Fidalgo Island weather station has signed off.  In about a week, I will be moving to a new home in the city of Anacortes, Washington.  Watch for the inauguration of Creekside Station, Anacortes in the coming weeks.

Retirement should be a time of leisure.  When I began anticipating it, making this move was part of the planning.  The new home is located in a quiet neighborhood with a park-like setting.  It is smaller and will be much easier to take care of.  I will still have my own patch of woods affording an edge habitat right outside my windows.  Discovering what Anacortes urban nature has to offer will be a new adventure.  I will also have more time time for hiking and exploring the wilds of Fidalgo Island and surrounding areas.

If you have bookmarked the weather page, you will find it temporarily coming up, "the page does not exist."  Don't make any changes.  As soon as the station hardware is installed at the new house and tested, the weather page will go live again for the new central Anacortes location.  This will probably take a few weeks to accomplish.
