Of course, water typically does run into streams and is absorbed into the ground, so 1 inch of rain rarely means an inch of standing water.

But whether or not we actually see 1 inch of water on the ground for each inch of rain, we can use this definition to construct a device that measures how much it has rained—a so-called rain gauge.

Rainfall is measured by the depth of water within a rain gauge, giving it merely a one-dimensional aspect. However, we live in a 3-dimensional world, meaning there's an associated volume for that water. Thus, the larger the area, the more gallons of water an inch of rain will provide. The infographic below helps put this concept into perspective.

Rain and snow are key elements in the Earth's water cycle, which is vital to all life on Earth. Rainfall is the main way that the water in the skies comes down to Earth, where it fills our lakes and rivers, recharges the underground aquifers, and provides drinks to plants and animals.

Purchased this to divert water from the gutter into a rain barrel without having to install an overflow valve. Worked like a charm. When it first rained after installation, it filled up a 55 gallon rain barrel to the top and then diverted the water back thru the downspout after the barrel was topped off.

That is not a lot of rain, but it could be a headache if it falls right in the middle of the day, or it is spread out all day. Roofing and guttering experts recommend that gutters have at least a quarter inch of slope per 10 feet to avoid standing water on your roof gutters.

Roof gutters need to be pitched toward the downpipes for the water to flow properly. A correct gutter slope prevents standing water caused by rainfall from accumulating on your roof gutters.

Winds nearing 80 mph damaged homes, cars, and powerlines in parts of Massachusetts, knocking out power to thousands of Massachusetts residents. The mouth of a rain gauge is a certain diameter. If the whole rain gauge were that diameter, a quarter-inch of rain in the world would be a quarter-inch in the gauge.

But funnel that rain into a more narrow space, and it will rise a lot higher. It then becomes easier to eyeball the difference between, say, one-eighth of an inch and one-quarter.
