Neu auf der Bitterwasser Homepage Button Wetter.

Ich habe mir eine kleine App für das Iphone heruntergeladen, welches mir von AppGuide empfohlen worden ist. Der Name ist Windfinder und gibt es in einer kostenlosen Version. Dort gibt es auch Windangaben für Namibia und Bitterwasser wird demnächst enthalten sein. Daher habe ich noch eine Rubrik Wetter hinzugefügt.
