Fancy Rain Gauge-Pretty,Functional and it Won’t Freeze
Most gardeners have rain gauges, we like to know how much or how little rain we have received. All the rain gauges I have had in the past have been purely functional, but I found this fancy rain gauge that is not only functional, but pretty as well. The best part is it won’t freeze in the winter.
I don’t know about you, but I have to replace my rain gauge regularly, because I forget to either take it down or empty it in the winter and it freezes. Rain gauges with glass tubes break and ones with plastic tubes crack and that means it’s time to replace it.
The outside of this rain gauge is copper which will age to a very pretty patina after a while. The copper body sits inside a twisted iron shell that is on top of the stake that you use to mount the rain gauge.
There is no glass or plastic tube that catches the rain on this rain gauge, instead it is unique in the way it measures the rainfall. The part that measures the rain is a blue polycarbonate tube that rises on the water that accumulates in the copper body. It will measure rainfall amounts up to 5 and 3/4 inches, enough for any normal rainfall.
If you are like I am and constantly have to replace your rain gauge, go ahead and click here and get this fancy rain gauge that will look pretty in your yard and you won’t have to worry about this winter.
