Default Fluid ounces to millimetres

I know we've had this conversation before ... I know I could work it
out myself if I hadn't had too much merlot last night ... but could
someone please remind me how many millimetres of rainfall exactly 2 fl
oz of water (thawed snow from the rain gauge) equals?

I could pour it back in the gauge, but there's a plug of ice at the
bottom, and my fingers are cold.

I could probably work it out if you told me the diameter of your rain
gauge.
