Miles at work
Miles Dreyer collecting a rainwater sample up on Clingman's Peak, just below Mt. Mitchell. Every Tuesday, he drives up there, gets a bucket with whatever rain was caught, replaces it with a fresh bucket, and then sends the water to the University of Illinois. The Mt. Mitchell collection site is part of a national network monitoring the composition of rainwater. Sometimes the weather is not as pleasant up there as it was this Tuesday.
