The Hunt for an Outdoor Thermometer

I mentioned back here that I've been looking for a new outdoor thermometer for our screened-in porch.  The requirements are pretty simple:  non-digital, non-cheapo-plasticky looking, and numbers big enough to see from inside.  I haven't been able to find "the one" so I turned to Amazon.  (See one you like?  Click on the picture to take you to it's Amazon page).

This one's very similar to the one we already have....does the trick but pretty blah.

Here's what I've been seeing a lot of in stores....I like it, but I wish the clock and thermometer were reversed.

I could proclaim my love for the Black & Gold, but ok, I admit....it might be a smidge tacky.

I like this one, but the only problem is it's a little smaller than I wanted.

I like this one, but what's a hygrometer?

This one could be nearly perfect....but sigh....it's almost $50!

Ooooh, this looks fun, but I have no idea how to use it.

Hmmm....maybe this one....



Which one is your favorite?  Any other ideas of where to look?  (I've checked Home Depot, Target, and Bed Bath & Beyond....and I'd like to try to get to Hobby Lobby).  The search continues...

I like the last one. It would work well for your porch. I'll keep my eyes open for one.

No clue where to find one (maybe Garden Ridge). I like the last three round ones shown. Now I'm thinking I need one too! lol We have a digital inside that has a part that goes outside and reports the temps/etc. Not as pretty as these!

Have a wonderful week, Angie! Stay cool!

Hey Girl! A Hygrometer measures humidity! I LOOOVE that one. That would be my pick. :)

I'm partial to the Galileo thermometer (that the 2nd one from the bottom LOL). I have a standing one in my family room. Each of the floaty bubbles has a temp # tag hanging on it, the lowest one at any given time is roughly what your temp is. I won't bore you with how it works exactly, but they're kinda fun! Plus they just look cool!
