How is this news to anyone????
It's news because we now have a more robust structure for data collection and analysis in CoCoRaHS and other networks. For those present and potential weather hobbyists and fans browsing our forum, I feel it's information worth presenting here, and I found the history to be interesting reading.
However, I'm inconsolably sorry my unworthy post insulted your erudite senses.
As an apology for my inexcusable transgression upon your esteemed presence, I have stripped myself of my shorts and T-shirt in favor of burlap and ashes.
In the spirit of Buddhist monks and in recognition of the Dalai Lama's birthday, I'll immediately go out to the busiest intersection of the nearest city center and slit my throat with a chain saw while in self immolation from a mason jar of bootleg corn whiskey.
My last vision will be of my autographed poster of Tom Skilling, which I have instructed to be buried with my ashes.
Yours in abject shame and remorse,
