Regular readers will know that for close to a decade I’ve measured precipitation every day for a national citizen-science group called CoCoRaHS (Community Collaborative Rain Hail Snow network). I mention it so often that some readers have made fun of me for it (“go measure some rain, ya nitwit!” or words to that effect).
Now it’s your turn to join me. March is recruitment month for CoCoRaHS in which they do a state-vs-state comparison. As of right now only one person from New Hampshire has joined this month, so the Granite State is a sad laggard in the competition.
You – yes, you! – can change that. Being a CoCoRaHS observer requires taking one measurement each morning using an official rain gauge and snow-measuring board. It’s a great way to know what’s going on – you can be Mr. Smarty Pants in every weather conversation!
