Make Your Own Snow Gauge
What you will need:
Take the 2-litre pop bottle and remove the outside wrapper. Then use the scissors to cut off the top half. Take the ruler and hold it up against the bottom half of the pop bottle. Using the permanent marker, mark the outside of the bottle in centimeters or inches. You now have your own snow gauge! You will want to place it outside so it can collect the falling snow.
Hint: Don't place it close to buildings. The gauge might not collect as much because the building will block some of the falling snow.
