Quis custodiet ipsos custodis?
After a long period of highly stable
20-degree weather with freezing fog, we finally broke into the 30s with some nice street-clearing and roof-clearing rain. Looking at the Weather Bureau
this morning to check rain amounts, I found this. (I squashed the chart horizontally to fit the important parts into a readable image)
Note the cheery "Quality Control: OK!" on the line with an obvious instrumental error. I'm fairly sure we didn't have a 136 mph wind during the night. If we did, the Weather Bureau would no longer exist, and I wouldn't either.

Later: they did catch the error when compiling their monthly record. It shows 22 as max wind for that date.
