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 04/27 - Re-balanced "cron" load so each minute's tasks get done in that minute.
  • 2019 06/29 - Results from the 6/26 hail & lightning storm:
    - No web page updates -> Network switch lost its mind -> Power cycled & it's working; can upload pages to web site
    - Wind speed zero -> Hall effect sensor in anemometer killed by lightning -> Replaced part, datalogger is getting wind speed information
    - Wind speed zero at lodge wind meters -> Green top operator's wind speed display died & short-circuited the data line -> Disconnected dead unit from line -> Other wind speed displays are now working
    - No camera views from Manzanita -> Lightning strike killed transformer providing power to Manzanita dispatch building -> This will be a long-term fix as the dead transformer may be replaced in a few months as part of the night skiing lighting upgrade.
  • 2019 07/05 - Using solar powered electrical distribution to keep network alive through Manzanita.
  • 2019 07/12 - Trying to resurrect the "static burst" ("lightning") sensor. There will probably be a significant number of false "hits" until the bugs are worked out. Feel free to ignore or not get excited about this data channel . . .
  • 2019 07/19 - "Static Burst" Plan "B": A work-around to tolerate the "smart" power meter's 2 second "tick": Let the sensor hear and count each tick, and any other natural static bursts, and then subtract a "noise floor" count from each time bin's count. For the 48 hour page that's 1800 counts per hourly bin in the bar graph.
  • 2019 07/19 - "Static Burst" Plan "C": It turns out the power line "tick" rate varies, so we can't just subtract a single number to remove it. We're back to needing a way to not hear the "tick" by using a "radio quiet" power supply and location for the receiver.
