@ 130, the pic is pretty clear maybe you could by op a new camera which by the way ill bet your cup in the rain measurement is ten times better than what the papers and weather Channel say...

98 - it would also be more inaccurate since it is a tapered vessel.

0298.... no need to snark. My question was a compliment to the increased quality of this image compared to past submissions.

The recent storm brought 2 7/10 inches to the Upper Mesa.

The glass is holding rainwater at a depth of more than 2" of rain because it is tapered so the amount of space or area at the opening is not reflective of the area at the bottom. That is why a proper rain gauge is necessary to determine the actual amount of rainfall over a given area by using depth as a measuremnt, i.e. "inches of rain" falling on a given uniform surface area.

my rain consumer-quality gauge is tapered but the markings are more closely spaced, the closer you get to the top. Usually corresponds very closely to the official local reports.
