Barry Maday of Welcome, Minnesota decided to lighten the mood about all the recent rain.

He decided to take a 55-gallon drum that his wife uses to train horses and turn it into a giant rain gauge.

People that have seen the gauge have been getting a kick out of it, finding the humor in it all.

While some say it is very funny, it’s also kind of sad we have to get to this point.
