PFTC Event Grand Finale - Wind & Weather ~ Review & Giveaway


Here it is, the end of the Prepare For The Chill Event and I am very excited about the opportunity I was given to review the Weather Direct Basic from Wind & Weather!

Something that drives me crazy is the forever changing weather reports. You can't often check the weather for the next day without it changing by the next morning. Sometimes in the morning when I'm getting the kids ready, I just don't have the extra time to hope they are showing the weather on the t.v. or to get on the computer and look it up. However, I want to know what to expect for the day to know how to dress my kids and myself! Well, the Weather Direct Basic shows me the weather without taking up any of my not-so-abundant time.



Here's some info about the Weather Direct Basic...

Satellite-Assisted Internet-Powered Weather Station!
Weather Direct™ regional weather forecasters display up-to-date forecasts using the same sophisticated analysis as your local TV station. Weather Direct™ downloads information through a wireless gateway that plugs into your high-speed DSL or cable router. The gateway transmits by wireless radio frequency located anywhere in your house. It's just like having your own personal weatherperson! It even includes an additional sensor for temperature right in your own backyard.

Customize your multi-day forecasts and current weather reports to include up to five cities (choose from 60,000 specific locations) with the most comprhensive, reliable and up-to-the-minute weather information available - from the internet! Eas-read back-lit displays show a complete reange of weather data, graphics, trends storm alerts, atomic time and more! Change city selections and weather-data details anytiime.

We set ours up to show us the current weather, along with the forecast for the next 3 days. The unit is small enough to sit on a little shelf in our kitchen, yet large enough to easily see from across the room. We look at it in the morning and know what to expect for the day. That's especially nice for if rain or snow is in the forecast. The kids think it's the coolest and people always comment on it when they come over and see it. I think they have a little weather station envy. I don't blame them. We also have it showing the time, which is handy.

I think the Weather Direct Basic is awesome. It was easy to set up and we use it everyday. I am so happy with it and its performance.

This isn't just awesome for your family, but it would make a great gift too. I have a couple people who are very difficult to buy gifts for that I think would really like this. Who doesn't pay attention to the weather? Plus, it's regularly $69.95 on sale right now for $34.97! What a great time to get it! Just go here.
