Do you like observing weather from your own backyard? If so, we need you for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network…known as CoCoRaHS. You are required to purchase an official 4 inch diameter CoCoRaHS rain gauge ( $22 plus S&H)for accuracy and consistency. Data is entered via a web site and you can see your report and all the other CoCoRaHS daily reports in the county, state, and country. To learn more about this great volunteer program, go to the CoCoRaHS web page.
