You can punch up The Weather Channel, stick a ruler in a tin can, but hey, how cool is this? The Improvements Timex Rain Gauge System uses radio waves to transmit information up to 100 feet. Good for a desk top or wall mounting, it lets you know rainfall amount, time, and temperature. The device comes with a self-emptying collector (hardware included.) The system needs 2 AA and 3 AAA batteries (not included) and carries a price of $34.99.

Its nice, Id honestly like something like that. I hear TWC is going HD this week. Its about time!

Nice idea.

I don’t see the big deal with weather stuff like this, I just stick my arm outside.

I personally use the widgets built into OS X.
They do a superb job

This is really cool for those aspiring meteorologists out there!  However, we have a weather station not too far from my home, so I can always pull more accurate data from that instead and save the money.  Still, I am sure some people will find a use for this.

like buckeye i also have a weather station that gives me local information so most likely im better off going with that-
but eh, we havent been getting much rain anyway so i guess id be wasting money on a device for measuring precip =P
