CoCoRaHS, the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network

I recently became an active member in CoCoRaHS, the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network sponsored by the National Weather Service. CoRaHS began at the Colorado Climate Center at Colorado State University in response to a damaging flood in Fort Collins, Colorado in 1997. Having installed the Official CoCoRaHS Gauge and set up the requite web account to report my daily readings, at 7am sharp each morning I take a reading of rainfall, temperature, and record information about clouds. How CoCoRaHS is pronounced is a question often asked; it’s “KO-ko-rozz”

My CoCoRaHS Station Name is Bellevue 1.1 SE and Station Number is WA-KG-231. I see an active number of participants on the Eastside (King County, Washington).

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” – Matthew 5:45 (KJV)
