    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 do not use thermostat because here to Athens we do not have often snow ,but when we have,i will open the lights switch on-off manual.
