Imagine being part of a continent wide network!

One of the easiest and most satisfying volunteer projects your blogger is involved in is CoCoRHaS,  a volunteer network of people across the US, and now in Canada, who report precipitation.

CoCoRaHS is used by a wide variety of organizations and individuals.  The National Weather Service, other meteorologists, hydrologists, emergency managers, city utilities (water supply, water conservation, storm water), insurance adjusters, USDA, engineers, mosquito control, ranchers and farmers, outdoor & recreation interests, teachers, students, and neighbors in the community are just some examples of those who visit our Web site and use our data.
For the local food community, precipitation and lack of it are vital information.  Please read about this amazing organization and if you can, volunteer.
