I love this rain gauge but it is not "year- round" . It breaks when ice forms and there seems to be no way to replace only the glass. This happened to me and to my sister, for whom I bought this as a gift.
I love it - very high quality
Product looks great. It's easy to read. I didn't think I would see any rain in it till later in the year, but the weathermen say we have a good chance this weekend.
Easy to read, but the glass broke during the last hard freeze when I forgot to empty it before night fall.
