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 01/13 - Snow Depth caution: The sensor is currently experiencing noise issues which result in wildly incorrect readings. We can't turn it off in software, and the readings are good between about 10PM and 7AM, so kindly bear with us as we implement a fix. Maybe we can arrange for new snow to only fall at night ;-)

  • 2019 01/20 - 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. When on site we can manually determine and edit the numbers, but the weekend crew is not always here. So . . . Beware of "snowfall" numbers that jump 50 or 90 inches overnight (or exceed something like 3X the actual snow depth).

  • 2019 01/20 - Snow depth issue (continued): The previous estimate of the problem spread in the last week, to the point where battery-only operation not only got noisy, but got completely noisy. This suggests yet another failure mechanism is involved. A prediction: Things may get quieter if the temperature goes well below freezing. The recent rain (instead of snow) may be related.
