First, An Amusement: The Off-Grid Extreme Weather Alert.

off grid extreme weather alertHurricanes, earthquakes, gales, typhoons, floods: extreme weather can happen anytime, anywhere.

On the grid, you can track and follow these phenomena with ease: but what do you do when the grid is down? You need an off-grid system.

With a few wild-gathered materials, and simple tools and wire, you can create a variety of weather alert stations which can indicate if you are currently experiencing extreme weather.

This Instructable will give you the techniques you need to create your own basic Off-Grid Extreme Weather Alert Station.



Next, Two Practically Instant Indulgences.  

I am fond of dark chocolate. Really dark chocolate – as in 100% cacao unsweetened chocolate. My favorite is the Ghirardelli 100% cacao Premium Baking Bar. I use it as the base for all kinds of treats, that I can make exactly as sweet as I want them to be.

I have two Instructables featuring Dark Chocolate:  Nutella Noir Chocolate Squares and Just Enough Fig Pockets.
