Make a Rain Gauge

Wednesday, June 17, 2020. Today is make a Rain Gauge Day. How important is rain? 1 inch of rain falling on your average 3000 square foot roof produces over 1800 gallons. That’s a lot of water to use on your garden.
How to make a gauge: Materials needed:
• 1 Liter bottle
• Scissors
• Ruler
• Pen or marker
• Journal or iPhone app (for recording rainfall)
Instructions:
Using a plastic disposable water bottle you can make a simple rain gauge. It costs almost nothing!
1-liter plastic water bottle. With a sharp knife, cut its neck on the cylindrical part.
Invert the top to make a funnel. This funnel will prevent evaporation of water.
Using your ruler and pen, place a mark every 1/2 inch on the bottle. These will allow you to measure how much rain you received.
An empty plastic bottle, being light, will fall down or fly away in the slightest breeze. Dig a hole and bury the lower end of the bottle in the ground. This will anchor the bottle in place.
After it rains, head outside and check your gauge! Record your results.
