The way I measure rainfall is with two - yes, two rain gauges. They have served me well.
But my sweet husband decided there must be a better way. You know how men are - they always think there's a better way. Well, come to find out, there is!
This is the weather machine I got for Christmas (told you I was a very good girl). We just got it put up (yes, it took us a while).
It's going to be so much fun recording the rainfall totals. Now, if it would just rain!
