Re: 2009 rain total

Yes, I'm a member of Cocorahs and submit my precipitation for 2009 was
64.97. We were definitely above our drought of the past couple of years
and 12.44 from our "normal". For those interested in joining a
nation-wide precipitation reporting group, whose results goes into NOAA,
" CoCoRaHS is a grassroots volunteer network of backyard weather
observers of all ages and backgrounds working together to measure and
map precipitation (rain, hail and snow) in their local communities. By
using low-cost measurement tools, stressing training and education, and
utilizing an interactive Web-site, our aim is to provide the highest
quality data for natural resource, education and research applications.
The only requirements to join are an enthusiasm for watching and
reporting weather conditions and a desire to learn more about how
weather can effect and impact our lives." I've been a member since 2007
and have enjoyed the information.

We had a touch of snow this a.m. but it is gone. We are in a cold spell
and the ground is "crunchy" so I've been looking over catalogues. On
another note, has anyone had experience with "The Cook's Garden"

Subject: [CHAT] 2009 rain total 

Don't know if anyone else keeps track of their rainfall, but we got 74 1/2" 
in 2009. Our normal yearly total is 35". And that's just what showed in 
the rain gauges, so chances are we got more than that! Astounding. It's 
still boggy down here - terrible. That's the highest annual total I've 
recorded since I bought this place in early 1996.
