Remarks: 
Prime datalogger failed on 2/9 and was repaired by the afternoon of 2/13.  Measureable precipition occured during the data outage but the 
exact amount is uncertain but approximately 0.20 inches for the whole outage period.  In addition the low temperature on 2/13 may be too warm 
as only about half of the data was sampled.  This may impact the temperature statistics.  
Period of Record of Ellington Field climatology for comparison.  POR 07/1941 - 08/2007
