April showers bring May flowers

We made a very simple rain guage and the plan is to check it each time it rains and record our data.

Using an empty 2L  pop bottle, we filled the bottom with tiny stones. We then attached a ruler with packing tape, and then filled it with water so that the water level is right at the ‘0’ mark on the ruler. As it rains, we’ll be able to see how much rain falls each time.

Sunday was an exciting day – we had rain! Unfortunately, not enough fell to get the water level past 0. Next time though! Next time! 🙂
