About this Site

     I made this website for something to do, its totally not for profit.  At first, it was just a single personal web page made with FrontPage in experimental mode.  I decided to put some extra stuff on like hobbies.  Bought a house, along with a house out in the boonies/woods/sticks.  Telescope and then a Weather Station later was added.  Nice dark skies at night and decent weather most of the time, along with the occasional power outages.  My hobbies over the years have gone from Astronomy to Weather watching.  Guess I got carried away with Weather watching some eh?
