I know you have read and heard me go on and on about the rain here. I’m still amazed by the sheer power of the rain. You can hear the rain pouring down afar several minutes before it reaches you.

The rain comes down powerfully and by the tons. We also wash and reuse our storage bags so they are a familiar sight on our clothes line. Last night we had a very brief down pour and this morning I saw our bags hanging on the line and thought of how our rain gauge is our storage bags on the line. So here’s how we measure “gauge” the rain fall.
