    —The S.C. Department of Natural Resources' State Climatology Office and the National Weather Service are looking for volunteers across the state to measure and report the rain, snow, sleet or hail that falls on their homes, farms, or businesses. How does one become a CoCoRaHS observer? Go to the CoCoRaHS website at www.cocorahs.org and click on the "Join CoCoRaHS" emblem on the upper right side of the main website. After registering, all CoCoRaHS observers take a short on-line training course and may begin to report. Your rainfall observations will become part of the volunteer nation-wide record and be plotted on maps of your county and state. You may view these maps and see how your observation compares with other CoCoRaHS observers across South Carolina. If you have any questions, contact the local coordinator for your region or the SC State Climate Office.
