Della Richmond receives 30 year Length-of-Service Award
Since February of 1976, Della Richmond has been recording the daily precipitation and snowfall for Osborne County, Kansas. This information is used by many different agencies and is especially useful in tracking long-term climate changes.

Della is also in charge of the local publishing office and drives a school bus. She must be one of the busiest people. We know many of her flower seeds have made their way to far reaches of other states.

Merl Heinlein, Senior Forecaster at NWS Hastings, Nebraska, was proud to present Della with her 30 year award.
