Dear Adafruit Industries,

I just wanted to let you know how excited I was to get my BMP085 prior to the hurricane reaching northeastern Massachusetts.

I rigged it up and logged samples for about 24 hours, you can see my
jury-rigged Arduino, the sensor, and the data here:

Thanks so much for the neat device, the great instructions and the sample Arduino library/code. Setup was a breeze! [pun half-intended]

Keep up the good work!

  1. I love stories like this.

  2. I have a similar setup sending date to Pachube, you can see my feed here:

    I think my barometer is about 2.2 kpa over the actual value. Could be due to my altitude or something.
