[url=Greetings fellow rain gauge trackers 15 years ago today on June 17, 1998, the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow network (CoCoRaHS) website was launched. Thanks so much for taking an interest in precipitation and being a part of our CoCoRaHS rain gauge team. Our collective efforts are appreciated more than you may realize. CoCoRaHS was a direct response to a devastating local flash flood here in our community (Fort Collins, Colorado) the previous summer (July 28, 1997). With the help of sponsors here in northern Colorado and 3 enthusiastic local high school students (Daphne, Luke and Tom) volunteers were recruited, trained and equipped throughout the spring of 1998. The last step was getting the interactive website to work to receive, map and display data. Luke worked tirelessly on the website, Tom worked on the mapping application, and Daphne continued to recruit volunteers including students from nearly 40 schools.

On June 17, 1998, we "pushed the button" and CoCoRaHS was launched. 15 years ago the internet was still new to many people. A good percentage of our early volunteers did not have internet access so they called in their reports by phone. A few of those original volunteers are still calling in precipitation today. Celebrate with us -- Let's reach 12,000 Please join in celebrating our 15th anniversary this week, by sending in daily precipitation measurements. We'd love to surpass 12,000 reports per day this week. We can if we all pitch in. For about 10,000 of us, rain gauge reporting has become a habit (thanks so very much!). As a result each and every day a beautiful map of precipitation patterns emerge as our reports trickle in from across the country. There are thousands more who have registered to be a part of CoCoRaHS recently or in the past but who aren't in the habit of reporting. If that sounds like you, then I encourage you to get involved this week.[/url]

I think this is a worth while thing since everyone is into weather. All you need is a rain gauge of there standard which  i bought. And internet or if not you can call it in. They will give you a ID station number for where you live. Check it out, you may like it.
