He and Eby had a great time measuring the snow accumulation this morning. I love to see my smart men at work!
If you are interested in weather and want to be part of a network of Volunteer Precipitation Observers, go to the CoCoRaHS website and register. The only cost is $23.00 for your rain gauge. Then you can gather data that will be used by scientists, farmers, the National Weather Service, and lots of other people, all around the country. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to do “real” science.
You can even be weather buddies with Russ and our family! What could be more fun than that?
When I told Russ that I was going to blog about the morning activities, he wrote this blurb for me:
Join the “Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow Network” by becoming a volunteer Precipitation Observer. Your daily entries are mapped immediately and are available for you, your neighbor, and the world to see.
There you have it – stop watching the weather and start measuring it. You and your kids will love it.
As for Large Family Question #4, I’ve gotten some great responses. Please email me your thoughts (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post a comment, and I will share them all in the next day or so. I am happy to keep your comments anonymous if you prefer.
