Huntington weather every day!

About the ESWB

Welcome to the East Street Weather Blog! I’m John Hadden and I’ve been watching the weather and observing the sky here since 1986. I’ll be posting daily updates of weather observations, astronomical info, and commentary on what’s going on in the sky here in Huntington, Vermont. You can also find my Personal Weather Station feed on Weather Underground at KVTHUNTI3.

A note about the forecasts I give: I pull my information from a couple of different sources, mostly from the Weather Underground and National Weather Service forecasts and discussions, and from a couple of other skier-focussed blogs during the ski season. I’m not a trained meteorologist by any measure – just an entusiast – so I definitely rely on others!

I hope you enjoy the blog!

  1. Hello John,

    I just found your site today – it’s terrific. I would love to emulate it at my own weather blog but I know I’d never do as good a job. Thanks for setting such a fine example. The nature pictures are an incredible bonus!

    • Thanks Mary, I’m glad you like the blog! Don’t be daunted in your own efforts–just give it a shot! The photos are something of a motivation for me as the blog gives me a regular avenue to show them.

      Take care,
      John

  2. I’m sure you hear this a lot, but you got the best weather and the best historical data, which are very helpful to me as I have a farm and I’m an engineer by trade… thus I love numbers 🙂 Keep up the great work!

    John,
    So far you and NYT are my only subscriptions on email, because I want to choose what hits even my virtual desk. The photos won me over!

    Hi John,
    I live in Huntington up near the upper village and also have a Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station. Santa’s little gift last year 🙂 We’ve been wanting to post our data to wunderground so our family can see the weather here, and so we can track our data over time. Do you know if we need to purchase the additional software? I’d love to talk to you about this and your setup sometime.

    • Hi Carmen,
      Yes, you will need to purchase some software as well as a “Data Logger” to make the connection between the station and the internet. Depending on what kind of computer operating system you have, there are several choices. If you go here: http://davisnet.com/weather/products/weather-reporting-software.asp you’ll see what Davis offers. On my Mac I use an app called “WeatherTracker”. Let me know if you need any more assistance!

      Cheers,
      John

    John-What kind of a camera and lens do you use-especially for your close up nature shots?

    • Hi Marcia,
      Thanks for your comments and thanks for subscribing to the blog. It seems like there’s been a hatch of dragonflies in the past 24hrs as I noticed quite a few flitting about this afternoon. As far as my equipment, I’m shooting with a Nikon D90 and using a Tokina 100mm macro lens for most of my close-up work. More to come!
      Cheers,
      John

    Hi John,

    Good ski last Friday @ CHN. I hope you got a chance to get out ride over the weekend. It’s been a amazing winter so far!

    • Hey Bob! Yes, that was a fun quick ski the other afternoon. And, yup, I’ve been out skiing every day! I’ll wait ’til things warm up a bit today before heading out though! Let’s be in touch!

      Cheers, John

    Hey john, we need to get out & go for another ride. I was thinking of trying the camels Hump trails on the fat bike. Maybe you could give me a tour.
    To business. Can you put me on the daily email list please? I would love to get your weather report daily.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    • Hey Dan,
      Yes, I’d love to show you around the CHN trails. Let’s make a date! Regarding subscribing to the blog, look in the upper right side of the daily web post—there should be an option there to subscribe to the blog. Let me know if you don’t see it. I don’t think I can subscribe others so you’ll have to do it yourself.

    Your blog is the first thing I open on my computer each morning. I love the photos, the weather information and most especially the section where you show the increase/decrease in daylight each day. Knowing the days get longer by minutes and seconds is one of the things I look forward to after winter solstice. I have a question I’m hoping you can answer. I thought that the vernal and autumnal equinoxes were the dates on which we had exactly 12 hours between sunrise and sunset but I noticed that we reached the 12 hour mark a few days ago and the vernal equinox isn’t until tomorrow. Do you happen to have an explanation? It would be most appreciated.

    • Hi Chichi,
      Thanks so much for your interest and enthusiasm for my blog. It helps get me out of bed in the morning knowing readers like you are waiting for it!

      Yes, I do have an answer for you about the equinox: latitude and refraction of sunlight. I was actually going to discuss this very thing in tomorrow’s blog. Here’s a link to a concise article on the phenomenon:

      See you tomorrow!

      Cheers, John

        Hi John,

        Well, it’s a lot more complicated than I thought but like all things in the universe, it’s much more interesting than I imagined it could be. Thank you so much for your answer. The link was fascinating.

        Best regards,
        Chichi

  9. You’re welcome! Yes, the geometry of the planets and sun can be a bit mind-bending, but it’s good stuff to know!

    Where in the Western Reserve were you visiting and taking pictures of bluebells in the woods? I ask because I have a place not too far away from there in Chautauqua County, N.Y. where we have absolutely no bluebells in our woodlot. Maybe because we are up at 1300 feet and take the full blast of lake effect snow off Lake Erie all winter.

    Thanks for the continued array of great pictures to go along with the weather data.

    • Hi Jason,
      My mom’s (now old) house is in Gates Mills (east side of Cleveland). The bluebells grow all over the place!
