Weather Channel

Talk Stormy To Me

Today’s DGB is to collect some data and help fight climate change.

Do you unironically enjoy the movie Twister? Do you include local meteorologists on your list of favorite celebrities? Have you been known to watch the Weather Channel even when you have no plans to go leave the house? Well, my friend, today’s Grab is for you!

The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network (CoCoRaHS) is a non-profit organization working to collect and maintain precipitation data using a national army of volunteers. This data is used by everyone, from local teams of emergency and community officials, to the big leagues (or is it bigly…) like the National Weather Service.

CoCoRaHS provides training and you will need a high-capacity rain gauge (they have an official CoCoRaHS one), and we found a few on Amazon too.
