My mom picked up this cute rain gauge for me from a Southern Living party we went to. She thought it might be fun for the kids to track how much rain we get. Of course, prior to getting this, we were getting monsoon quality rain storms pretty much daily, and now nothing. So I guess that's the secret, if you want rain, it doesn't happen. Oh well. It's pretty anyway. Hopefully Perry won't run it down with the lawn mower.
