Jeanie, surely you know about Old Indian Weather method?

Hang rock outside of window or door. If rock is wet, is raining or foggy. If rock is hot, sun is shining. If rock is white on top, must be snow. And in OK, if rock has shiny covering of ice, too cold.! Go back inside, dummy!

I do hope that everyone knows that there is totally, absolutely NO racial or ethnic slur even remotely intended there. It's just an old joke, is all.

Lol .... a friend sent that one to me the other day, but she's a Texan and she called it a Texas rain gauge.

Can you leave it on that board or are you suppose to run around the yard trying to catch the drops?

RE: New Oklahoma Rain Gauge

PHJ, I've tried it both ways. Went galloping around the yard trying to capture the drops, slipped in my wet, lush, green grass, fell in a puddle and but for my dog "Ferti-Roam" would have drowned! Lesson learned!

Probably need to move around, Punkin. Otherwise, it might not catch any of them. You'd need to have good distance vision, and be quick. Even then it would be a matter of luck. Several times our front yard has only gotten about 6 drops.

I bet it would work if you put it under the gutter downspout.

RE: New Oklahoma Rain Gauge

I think you need to mail it out of sate to ,say, Oregon or even Southern California who are having unheard of summer rains. My husband sent it to me yesterday with a Texas Rain gage tacked on it. We have renamed Tropical Storm Dan , Tropical Storm Bupkis.

Emily is another dud. Hope we have better luck with the letter "F".

Maybe Frankin, Gert or Harvey will fill up some rain gauges in our region. Or, the way our luck is going, maybe not.
