When I turned on my kitchen radio this morning the announcer was asking people to check their rain gauges and then call in their results. The midwest (U.S.A.) was hit hard with rain last night. There were also tornado warnings and the sirens were blaring all around. I actually got out of bed and put my clothes back on and went out on the front porch to see what I could see, but too many trees whipping around, so nothing. I went upstairs and watched out my west window and looked for tornadoes everytime the lightning flashed, which was pretty constant, and nothing. I eventually grew very tired and fell asleep and woke up to find I am still in Indiana.
Well, I don't have a rain gauge but I do have a bucket of tadpoles out back that a friend brought to me from West Virginia. It is now full and the little guys are having a ball swimming around in that fresh rainwater. I'm thinking at least five inches. Do you think my 'rain gauge' would count?
