Statistics Saturday: Room Temperature Versus Time for Programmable and Non-Programmable Thermostats


The gradual rise and fall of a room temperature when subjected to a non-programmable thermostat.
Apparently whoever uses this room works from home so don’t need to turn the thermostat down during the day.
The random fluttering of room temperatures with a programmable thermostat. Includes 11 emergency thermostat interventions and five cases when the thermostat was just punched.
When it gets to 76 degrees, SELL!

I think you’ve been in that second graph’s hotel room, too.

The Stormy Gift-giving Season


Weather Underground sees a temperature of NA Fahrenheit and -9999 Celsius for Lansing.

I like relying on weatherunderground.com for checking on weather, and it doesn’t usually mislead me, apart form a little stretch the other day when the temperature was NA Fahrenheit (or -9999 Celsius). The other day one of their little side ads suggested, “Give a friend the gift of weather”. Now I’m considering ordering for myself something small and cheap, maybe a late-morning fog or one of those odd little flashes of lightning you sometimes get as you’re trying to go to sleep and that isn’t accompanied by thunder or a storm or even other flashes of lightning. I don’t need them, obviously, but I’m dying to know how they’re packaged. I have to suppose in something non-conductive and resistant to moistness, but there’s literally two or three kinds of package like that.
