Its a great way to check out your kit.
Mom passed away back in Feb, I've since moved back in to care for dad who has Parkinson's. Every Friday and Saturday night I camp out in his back yard.
Woke up Sunday morning with 3.5 inches of water in the rain gage. Stayed completely dry, but didn't sleep much with all the noise, even with ear plugs. All night I'm laying there counting the seconds between the lighting observed though my closed eyelids and the rolling thunder.
