Thursday 7/30/2009 -- Weather Station taken down in Parker.
This website was primarly created as a public service for residents of Littleton, Colorado and Vicinity.
This weather station is privately owned and operated, is not affiliated with the City of Littleton, Colorado.
and should not be considered an officially recognized station for weather.
The gifts given to me to create this website have come from Almighty God. This website was created for the Greater Glory of God (Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam !). Specifically a devotion to The Divine Child Jesus (image appearing on upper right hand corner). The patron saint of the webmaster is St. Alphonsus Liguori :
"My Jesus, Thou alone art sufficient for me. MY love, do not permit me to separate myself from Thee. When shall I be able to say, 'My God, I cannot lose thee any more?' "

As of August 2009, our family moved to Littleton, Colorado and I have moved my weather station to this location as well. I have kept the historical data from my 3.5 years of living in the Pinery in Parker, CO on this website.
Prior to this, this website previously operated as Greg's Broomfield, Colorado Weather (www.broomfieldweather.com). I have changed the design, & format, and how the data is displayed but the weather station and location is the same. Click here to see a screen shot of my former weather website design.
The data you see on ExceptionalWeather.com's website is primarly fed from a personal weather station at our home utilizing high quality weather instruments, as well as other data sources, including the National Weather Service to provide local, accurate, and timely weather conditions for the greater Littleton, Colorado Area. I hope you enjoy using this website and welcome any comments, suggestions.
