I love the simplicity of the rain gauge, and the 24 inch stake is perfect to use in pots or in the ground. Prompt service, too.
Since the top part of the rain gauge showed slots for screws, I assumed the top would screw to the base. Instead,the top just sits down in the spiral at the top of the base,with nothing to make it stay there. Oh well, Iwill see how it works. It would make more sense to sell the two pieces together.
