02/07/18 13:00 - Earlier freezing rain resulted in a failure of the automatic tipping bucket that measures my weather station's rainfall. Upon opening the device up a chunk of ice was discovered under one side of the bucket preventing it from tipping. The ice was removed and the bucket was manually tipped a number of time to match the amount of rain in the backup rain gauge.
