Weather Watching

ImageWith a 40-mile view of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains I love watching the weather. All kinds of clouds gallop across the Pacific Ocean and fly over the mountain tops  to produce our maritime weather. 

As a citizen scientist, I am part of a team of volunteer weather watchers and measurers: http://www.cocorahs.org. Our information provides important supplemental backup for the National Weather Service forecasts. Anyone can participate. All it takes is a $30 rain gauge and a computer. Even my 10-year-old nephew in North Carolina is part of this team.

Look us up and join in. It is a lot of fun and very informative.

    Your photograph made me think ‘Moody Blues’…

  2. I didn’t know you did this and I am fascinated.
    It sounds like something fun and interesting; connecting to that larger data set and contributing in a very local way to the wider picture. Yay.
