Hillsrain NOTICE

A server and security upgrade rendered the weather photo gallery inoperable. Sadly its return as it was is unlikely. If you are interested in any of the older referenced images please contact us and we will provide access to the image.

Current weather conditions are sadly permanently offline! The webcam is also still offline with no ETA on its return. If anyone wishes to contribute time and energy they can be restored!

On 26-10-2014 a very active storm passed overhead with a strike to the house taking out my weather station and the PC that ran it and the webcam. It has left me with complete system failure and it is unknown as to how long it will be before I can get it back online, or indeed if it returns at all.
Its been 14 years of nearly uninterrupted data!

You can read a bit about the storm plus images here..
