Every year during March the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network(CoCoRaHS) conducts “March Madness”, a campaign to see how many new observers each state can recruit. Do you have an interest in measuring rain, hail, and snow from your own backyard? Why not become a member of the ever growing community of CoCoRaHS observers? My site is IL-GY-1, the first to sign up in Grundy county. We currently only have 2 other observers in the county and could use many more. To learn more about the program visit the CoCoRaHS web page. You will need to purchase an official CoCoRaHS rain gauge for accuracy and consistency, the cost is about $25.00.
