Outdoor Weather Instruments with Nautical and Historical Flair Imagine pulling up in your driveway and seeing a beautiful outdoor thermometer made from brass, steel, and glass gently hanging from the porch instead of that gaudy plastic one. One of the fully functional outdoor weather instruments created from the ideas and designs of one of our brightest Presidents, Thomas Jefferson. It would give your home a touch of elegance and class. Outdoor Weather Instruments Do Not Need to Be Made from Plastic If you walk into the local supercenter you are going to come to the conclusion weather instruments for your deck and garden are required to be made from plastic. If this were true, how did ships' captains hundreds of years ago keep track of the weather and their position in the toughest conditions? They knew the best instruments were created out of brass and other high quality materials. Sometimes looking back in history is the best way to get the highest quality weather instruments of our day, too. You invested in a great looking backyard. Maybe it has a nice looking deck, waterfall, or other features you are extremely proud of. Think how bad it would look to stick a plastic rain gauge out in the yard. Now, imagine a 26" tall 2" glass diameter rain gauge with beautiful brass end caps. Even the rain gauges drain valve is made from beautiful weather resistant brass. The over-sized numbers are held in place be a stainless steel support. Cleverly the rain guage is designed to magnify the numbers be 50% when they are covered with water. This rain gauge has the appearance and feel of weather instruments used in long ago times, but with a few modern twists thrown in. You will not find cheap plastic on this gauge. This is the kind of outdoor weather instruments you will be proud to display in your outdoor garden or entertainment areas. Weather Instruments Which Capture Attention Indoors Not all weather instruments are meant to sit outside your home, some work great inside and can add to your decor. One great example is an Admiral Barometer. These classic appearing barometers cause visions of a captain's quarters aboard an old sailing ship. The 6" face is surrounded by brass. The large white face is intricately marked to mimic an antique barometer. You can mount the barometer on the wall or use it on a stand above a fireplace or on a dresser top. Not everyone is interested in old style weather instruments. Perhaps you want something with a nautical appearance but a modern design. An Endurance Comfortmeter is one of those great devices which has sweeping hands instead of dials. The chrome finish makes it shine brightly. What is really great about this combination thermometer and barometer is it can be used indoors or as one of your outdoor weather instruments. It can handle either environment and last for years. It is time to quit buying those plastic thermometers and rain gauges and step up to great indoor and outdoor weather instruments which look as great as your home. You will enjoy the way they look and perform.
