Lindsey: I want a rain gauge.
Alex: So you can tell whether it's raining or not?

from wiki: "A rain gauge (also known as a udometer or a pluviometer [fluviograph] or a cup)"

A cup? Really?! all those fancy technical names and someone had to tag "a cup" on the end of it? **smacks forehead**

The whole article kind of makes me laugh, really. How much can there possibly be to say about a thing that collects rain and has some markings on the side?

If Bombadil cannot ascertain the weather, it is doubtful that even a fancifully named pluviometer shall.

"For weather in that country was a thing that even Tom could not be sure of for long, and it would change sometimes quicker than he could change his jacket."
