Watching Weather Through Your PC

For many years, I spent most of my day inside a windowless video studio. Even our office areas had very few windows. To see what was happening with the weather, I would have to walk down a long hallway and out to the parking lot.

Now, I work a majority of the time at my home office. My desk faces a large window. I can get outside in about 6 seconds.

Does your office have a window? How many times per day do you check on-line weather radar or forecasts? Have you ever considered setting up a video camera outdoors, and routing it to a monitor in your office?

I guess the question behind the question is this: How much do changes in the weather affect your daily schedule during your work day? Consider your family’s activities as well.

And, would that change if you could see outside?
