We got another inch of rain this morning. I have this HUGE raingauge, easy to read from 50 feet away. Has a red float that rises with the rain. Pretty cool! Speaking of freezing water, does anyone know how the experiment went about the hot water freezing faster then cold water? I know someone put hot, warm and cold water in the freezer to test it, and there was a lot of debate about mineral content of hot vs. cold water, if the container is sealed or not, how much water is left in the frozen container after melt down to see if the hot water just evaporated and had less to freeze, etc.
