That’s the word from the state’s chief climatologist, John Christy is trying to accomplish. Tommy Stevenson decided to republish this article from earlier this month to help get the word out on his Tuscaloosa News blog. It gives a much more personalized account of what’s necessary to help the state in its efforts to accurately measure rainfall, though you could also visit the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network (yeah, it’s a long title) website,, to get more information about the program. They’ve already picked up some folks in the area thanks to a recent Birmingham News article, but they can never have too many people.
