We can all relate to the delight and fancy one finds in the use of a decorative snow gauge. Imagine that it is the first snow fall of the year, and mildly (only mildly) suppressing the child-like wonder – before even starting the coffee – you pull back the curtain to check the pure white blanket that has enveloped the house and transformed the normally plain surroundings. With the addition of a decorative snow gauge, you can as quickly determine if the weather man was correct in his prediction, and without needing to pause too long, you can glance out at the wrought iron snow gauge and know almost instantly how many inches of snow fell. As long as you choose a wrought iron gauge with large, readable numbers, you can quickly and accurately determine the snow depth from the cozy warmth of your kitchen or bedroom.
Though some customary snow gauges are merely utilitarian upright tubes, a beautifully crafted wrought iron snow gauge not only makes it easy for one to read the depth of the snow from the house, but also the decorative snow gauge will be a quaint though noticeable ornamental addition to any landscape.
A decorative snow gauge can be the perfect present for the friend or family member who has ‘everything.’ Matching almost any landscape, wrought iron snow gauges will add appeal to a modern lawn or a fanciful touch to a country haven. Also, because snow gauges are a fitting and enjoyable item for literally every age, family traditions can be started. Children enjoy counting the numbers – and announcing to the other household members the amount of fresh-fallen snow, busy parents are thankful to quickly judge how deep the snow is so they know how much extra time to allow before work or school, and seniors appreciate the charm and practicality of this much used item.
Not only for the winter snows, high quality, wrought iron snow gauges can be used for many purposes. In the summer time, the snow gauge could be packed away or it could be left to add some vertical lines to your landscape. During the warmer months, the decorative snow gauge can be used as a trellis for morning glories or tomatoes, as a perch for birds when settled by a bird bath, or merely as a quaint yard decoration – a reminder of the beautiful winter days to come. Whatever the season, snow gauges are practical yet attractive items that will compliment anyone’s yard.
