The station is up and operationa again effective 0640 this morning after an extended period of partially working.

This station has been reporting since 2006 in Maricopa, and from 2001 thru 2006 in San Francisco, so it's been pushing close to 20 years.

The Arizona weather - heat - is very destructive, and one by one components such as the Anemometer are failing. It is an old station and replacement parts are almost impossible to find. It took 2 months to find replacement Anemometers!

When this equipment fails, and it will because of sunshine and heat, the station will go off the air and the 15 years of weather records will be turned over to the U of A Ag center.
