Breaking Records (Weather, that is)

by Herb Saperstone

Its fun to watch each month’s weather and water patterns emerge into a story. This Spring in Fort Collins, its been warm and dry and we’ve coaxed (and coached) elementary students to report on these topics as they observe and report daily precip (or lack thereof) measurements to CoCORahs. When we post these on Poudre School District’s website, we usually get a handful of views. March’s report apparently struck a chord. Watch Seattle meteorologist Sc0tt Sistek’s post to see what I mean.  My guess? I think it was the missing teeth, cookies, and overall cuteness of these wonderful second graders.  Thanks to Dunn Elementary teachers Lori Ellendorff and Deborah Taylor for supplying the talent, and Matt Gohl (as usual) for great editing and graphics.  Eva Jane and Charlotte have a future career in TV meteorology!
