Rain Gauge Time

rain gauge
Got out my rain gauge and set it up weekend before last, in the midst of powerful dry weather. Man, did we need rain! You'll notice, I set up the rain gauge on a wooden stake, surrounded by a fence, and flanked by a pair of mystic guardian birds-on-a-wire.

All the better to keep the lawn mowing crew from running my rain gauge over, as they've been known to do sometimes twice in a single summer.

Saturday night we got rain at last, three tenths of an inch. Then yesterday evening we got a mighty thunderstorm, an inch and a tenth; though a neighbor tells me he got an inch and a half. His rain gauge is probably more accurate than mine.

Though nobody's got a rain gauge with such cool birds as mine. Guardian Cardinal to the left. Guardian Baltimore Oriole to the right.

That rain gauge has got power.

So do those birds indicate baseball loyalties..?
