Hoodoo Butte is a 5700' (1737 m) volcanic cinder cone located on the crest of the Cascade Range in central Oregon.

On your map, it's about 2.5 miles southwest of Santiam Pass (Highway US 20, milepost 81), and about 1.5 miles west of the Pacific Crest Trail. For the GPS-inclined, that's about 44.402 N, 121.882 W (WGS84 datum).

Notes:
  • Other sources of information

  • 2011 06/25 - Added moon rise & set times in the "Light Level" section. While the times appear to be correct, one known bug is that on days when there is not a moon rise or set, a time is computed and given anyway. Beware of moon rise or set times between 11PM and 1AM until this note is removed. (Another good reason not to stay up late.)
  • 2012 09/01 - Moon phase (%) is good, but the moon rise & set times can be off by more than an hour :-( Until I get this fixed, try a web page like this one.
  • 2015 08/15 - Weather Underground "local" map of current conditions
  • 2017 04/01 - Uploading raw weather data for the current day and the previous day. Tab-separated data columns, so you can "Open With" a spreadsheet program.
    - Files are uploaded shortly after the hours of 8, 12, 16, 20.

  • 2019 02/10 - Snow Depth caution: The sensor is currently experiencing noise issues which can result in wildly incorrect readings. The problem comes and goes. We get good readings between 10PM and 7AM, so the equipment fundamentally works. We're still looking for the where and how the noise is getting into the readings. The ODOT road and weather conditions report for highway US20 at Santiam Pass can provide a useful second opinion.

  • 2019 02/10 - Snowfall caution: The snowfall amount is derived from the snow depth information, so the problem with erratic depth readings affects the ability to automatically report snowfall. Until the problem is fixed we have to manually edit a log file to remove bad data. Beware of "snowfall" numbers that jump 50 or 90 inches overnight (or exceed about 3X the actual snow depth).
  • 2019 02/16 - Since the snow depth has gotten more interesting, here's a first hack at a new Winter Summary graph for 2018-19
