h.header_row # a list of the header row of the csv file
h.header_list # a list of dictionaries with the header row information
h.hobo_timezone_str # a string of the timezone as expressed in the header row
h.timezone # a Python datetime.timezone instance
h.data_rows # a list of each row of the timeseries measured data
h.data_columns # a list of each column of the timeseries measured data
h.datetimes # a list of the timestamps converted to Python datetime.datetime instances 

See the attributes_demo.ipynb Jupyter Notebook in the 'demo' section for more on these attributes.
