Puddle gauge

Puddle\'s a good rain guage

Ah, it’s really raining now… Still chilly, but wet! The jumbo rain gauge, entering its third season, is definitely a winner when it comes to recording in millimeters how much rain actually came down, BUT, the puddle on the path outside the Milkhouse front door is really the first line of rainfall appreciation. It’s amazing how heavy a downpour can look, sound and FEEL, without delivering much water at all. But the puddle doesn’t lie. It takes about a half inch (12mm) of rain within a few hours for it to even show up, so once it’s there, you know it’s good times for growing… No numbers to process, just…RAIN!
