Rain Gage

I picked up a cheap rain gage on a whim at the hardware store the other day, and it's really incredible to see how much rain we've gotten since then! A little over 2 1/2" total has fallen in the last 3 days, and it is still coming down steadily. You may be thinking that that's an awful lot of rain, but it's actually probably pretty average for spring around here.

Its really fun to have a tool to measure the rainfall, instead of relying on visual clues like the size of the moat we have to cross to get from the driveway to the front porch. :)
