60 gallons plus!
We bought ourselves a water harvesting barrel... a real luxury. And as these things go, I figured we had missed monsoon season--that it wouldn't really be of use until 2010. But starting last night, and continuing today, we have been getting rain/rain/rain! Glorious rain. Surprising rain. Rain and clouds -- the penultimate contrast to every other day. Puddles?! Mudholes. Slickers. Spring-loaded umbrellas. Windshield wipers slapping. Hair curling humidity. Yummm! My desert rat girlfriend had nightmares... she was trying to find travel crates for our pets and load everyone into a canoe to escape the flood. Can you see four cats and 2 dogs bobbing along, not tipping the craft?!
