Homestead To Observatory

Beau’s Home 2009

Beau lived on the farm between the years of 1970 and 1988. In 1988 the farm was lost during the farm crisis that swept the country leaving many farmers bankrupt. In 2007 Beau returned to visit the property on Christmas morning only to find a realtors lock on his old home place. The family living there having moved out Beau took the opportunity to purchase the old home place back from a regional bank.

Having studied weather since he was eight years old, Beau had been looking for a place to buy or build a house that had a view of incoming weather. That dream was realized in 2009 when he rebuilt on the family homestead. Building a complete weather center with instruments and weather cameras he opened this web-site for others to view and learn more about local weather conditions and events.
