Better resolution at rain gauge
I have made a patent for to have better resolution at rain gauge.Now at resolution at rainfall it is 0,25 mm from 0,5 mm at La-crosse rain gauge,and i do a correction - 50 % decrease from the weather software,for to have the really rainfall. The top of plastc box is twice of surface area of the La crosse rain gauge.I take 2 plastic boxes one big and the other one smaller,i cut the bottom two of them ,i stick betwen them bottom with bottom with warm silicone.And after i put to the top plastic box ,four pieces plastic from tent,and i stick them with warm silicone,for the rain to go inside at La crosse rain gauge.And i put all of them over to La crosse rain gauge like hat.

Here it is the 2 plastic boxes ,little plastic for tent ,and the warm silicone.The dimension it is for small plastic box 9 cm x 18 cm x 6,5 cm high.
And the big plastic box 9 cm x 18 cm x 13 cm high
Here i have open one square hole at center of the bottom to one plastic box 4,5 cm x 11,5 cm Here i have open and two of them,square hole at center of the bottom of them 4,5 cm x 11,5 cm

Rain gauge heater
I make another one modification ,heater rain gauge for to melt the ice,if there are very cold days with snow, the snow sit over to rain gauge no melt,and do not have mm rainfall,and after 2--4 days it melt slowly slowly from sun light and up temperature ,but so i loss the really mm rainfall from snow ,and so i make a modification heater rain gauge with 2 halogen lights G4 12 volt 5 watts.I use electronic thermostat.

Here it is the AC/DC adaptor 12 vVolt 3 Amber
waterproof box ,2 halogen lights G4 12 v 5 w ,cable,fuse
Here it is the rain gauge ,lights base ,and conection for cables Here i mark the right position where must to put the lights base ,i will put the light near to the roof for to have this positon more heater
