Okay, at this rate this is going to become a blog exclusively about the old, lovely, functional things I accumulate. I’ve acquired yet another magical item today: an antique, functional barometer. It’s beautiful, and I was so excited to discover that it works. We’ve had a rare rainy day today so I’ve been able to watch it shift over the last few hours as the weather cleared up.
The words there are Stormy, Rain, Change, Fair, and Very Dry, with the arrow correctly indicating “Fair” weather. When I picked it up today it was forecasting “Change,” which I found spooky. And as you can see, the middle there is just class: you can see into the little mechanism.
