    Best Way To Season?

    Tupperware seals very tightly, and works fine. Usually, guys using tupperware or other plastic containers get by just fine with a couple Bovida packs and just replace them when they dry out. If you want some Bovida's, I've got a ton of them in storage. Happy to send a few along if they'd help.

    Dry Boxing

    My experience with Padron is they are so well made, they don't need a dry box treatment. The question; "...have you EVER had a plugged Padron..??..". My answer is no. Can't see how it'd hurt, but not particularly beneficial. One guy's opinion...

    Padron - accepting orders

    As said, for the new guys, this is the real deal and very well worth your time if Padron is in your wheelhouse. For me, not this time, but next time for sure...!! Always a pleasure, Jim.

    Thanks for the comments. If you're curious, we're running an Ambient Weather WS-2902-C. The systems from Davis are pretty much the standard for TV and radio stations, small airports, etc. but at roughly half the price (and with superior WiFi), the Ambient Weather systems are pretty darn cool...
