Yep, that would have worked here today also. They claimed we would get heavy rains today...what we got was heavy air 93 when I left for work and you probably could have breathed easier with gills...the rain ? never saw any at all. Still hopeful but man is it dry here.

I could use one of those, Doug! Are you selling? How much is shipping?
We're under a burn ban. No charcoal grilling, only gas or electric with a hose close by.

We are dry as well but expecting up to 1.5" today and tonight. Problem is it's thundershowers which could cause forest fires.

Doug, looks like that gauge won't work for you today! Rain & storms your way. Our grass is greening back up, but still way short of average rainfall, but at least doing better!

Kenny, if you go down to your local carry out and check the beverage selection you'll find that some manufacturers give these away with their beverages. They're like the prize in the cereal box! If you can't find the prize just send me 10 bucks and i'll include the shipping. I wouldn't do it for everybody, just you!!

Most of what we've had this year will blow the guage away. Today wasn't that way......at least yet. I don't think we've filled the guage. It was just enough to make the "hummugity" that much worse. Last year we broke the all time rainfall record by over a foot. This year we're 5 inches below normal. I mowed the buckhorns and weeds and a few grass patches in the yard last weekend. It was the first the mower has been run since the end of May.

That would work here too. Have not seen a drop of rain in 3 weeks. Now I wounder which would hold less? A bottle cap or a Thimble.

We've had 3 storms since Tuesday afternoon, bringing a total of 6 1/2" of rain, so the cap as a rain gauge wouldn't work for me finally!
I don't even have a rain gauge, but this week empty buckets have served me well! What drastic weather changes. That's the problem with the weather patterns of late....nothing but extremes. No average anything any more!

If it starts raining again you could use the empty bottle.....
