Allen County, KY CoCoRaHS Observers Recognized

NWS Louisville Warning Coordination Meteorologist Joe Sullivan recently presented two Allen County, Kentucky CoCoRaHS observers with plaques to recognize their years of uninterrupted dedication to the program.   Few -if any - NWS meteorologists can match the "perfect attendance" records of these two observers as they each tallied up approximately 350" of precipitation!

David Calvert, the NWS Cooperative Observer for Scottsville (and Allen County CoCoRaHS Coordinator), arranged for recognition of the efforts of Junior Davasher, who has not missed a  daily report since signing up with CoCoRaHS in December 2007, and John Holder, whose commitment to the cause began in August 2010.  During the presentation of the awards at a Scottsville Rotary Club luncheon, Calvert mentioned that Davasher was so conscientious about reporting that on at one occasion, when he was too ill to leave his home to check his rain gauge, he had a family member bring in to him so that he could verify the rainfall.    Now THAT's dedication!

Kudos to these two men for their years of service to help the NWS in Louisville work toward becoming a Weather-Ready Nation!
