Electronic rain gaugeYou can eliminate trips out to the rain gauge to see how much rain fell overnight with a new electronic gauge that maintains daily, weekly and monthly totals automatically.
The digital gauge, developed in Denmark and distributed in the U.S. and Canada by John Day Company, Omaha, Neb., consists of a rain collector that mounts outside and an electronic control box that goes inside. The collector can be located as far as 650 ft. from the control box (the gauge comes with enough cable to locate up to 25 ft. away).
You simply press a button to see at a glance how much rain has fallen over the past day, week or month. The gauge can total up to 99.9 in. before it requires resetting, or it can be reset at any time to start a new total. Measures to within 1/10 in. and automatically empties itself as it takes a reading so there's no need to worry about freezing temperatures that might break the gauge.
Sells for $39.95.
