Rain gauge [Mar. 12th, 2018|09:20 am]
Also in the shipment from Amazon (yes, guilty of exploiting the warehouse workers and not supporting locally; i do try to mitigate) a precise rain gauge. I will practice reading it a while before signing up to be a monitor -- also need to install a post for mounting it, and so on.

Its precision is quite lovely, i could read off .353" of rain and a small bug. So, precise but inaccurate, because of bug.

To measure snow and sleet, predicted in five hours, i should remove the inner precision tube and use that to measure the melted frozen accumulation in the tube.

I hadn't thought i'd need to think of that so soon.

Nonsense, i tell you. The Bread, Milk, and Toilet Paper consortium have gotten to the meteorologists. It's all a conspiracy.
