Simply put, my husband enjoys his rain gauge.
Randy is not only curious about how much it rains, but he also finds it useful to know how much to water the yard and flower beds.
In a previous post for Father’s Day, we purchased Randy a new E-Z Jumbo Rain Gauge to replace his father’s old gauge that eventually became weather worn.
Well… after three years that rain gauge stem broke while inserting it into the ground.
Instead of replacing it with the same brand, I found the World’s Coolest Rain Gauge that features interesting science behind it!
Archimedes of Syracuse, a Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer, discovered the principle of water displacement, and it is demonstrated in this unique copper rain gauge (aka pluviometer).
