I'm sure everyone here has a "highly technical" way of measuring their snowfall. This is mine. I built it out of leftover pressure treated construction lumber from some old home projects. It has a surface area of roughly 2100 sq/in and is placed facing due north, to take advantage of the air stream. It was coated with a couple coats of Benjamin Moore Forrest green latex, for added protection against the elements. (I sometimes use it in the "off season", for placing paper plates and plastic cups on).
So it appears, here in the tropics of sunny Southern N.E.,yesterdays snowfall, by my accurately calibrated snow meter, we got 13.2567 inches of frozen precipitation. (Hey, at least we can still see the table.) Anyone else have a method of measurements?
