I received a couple of e-mails asking me about my rain gauge. (See yesterday's post below.)
My old one cracked so I picked up this one from a local garden supply store. The nice thing about it is that I can read it from my porch without having to get out in the weather. The red float tells the amount of rainfall. The tube is made of soft plastic so I hope it doesn't crack in cold weather like my old one.
Last year we hardly needed a gauge. This year it's getting a workout.
