Rain gage clogged by blowing debris

Looks like the rain gage was clogged by some debris sometime during this storm. Fortunately I have a backup SRG-1 that recorded the correct amount that has fallen. The collection cup was nearly full so I loosened the debris when there was a hiatus in the rain and that's why the rainfall rate is so high about 1915 hrs. The two gages usually track very closely. I hate when that happens. This is the second time this occurred. I wish there where a way to effectively protect the opening without materially effecting the accuracy.
