Weather Gauge - The Cove at Fairview - Vacation Rentals - Asheville, NC

Weather Gauge!

This weather gauge was used by William (Bill) Moore to measure rainfall in Moncure, NC for the National Weather Service.  Bill was Marietta’s father and was loved by all.  In addition to measuring rainfall and snowfall, Bill also measured highest temperature, lowest temperature, and current temperature.  This is the official 1940’s rain gauge that he used.  The stand has been rebuilt and a new measuring stick has been purchased.  The rain gauge still works!
