Default Yes, Get One!

Yes... get one! I did the same several years ago... found a LaCrosse station identical to one I had at a previous home for $69 on closeout at Fleet Farm. Hard-wired it all together, connected it to a 'puter and put it on Weather Underground. So, wherever I am, at work, on vacation in AZ, I can see what the weather is at my house. Definitely a fun and worthwhile project!

Or, am I overthinking this and should just be satisfied with what is available on-line and on the TV and radio stations?
