Where I live now it seems to rain constantly, practically everyday. And now that I've started marathon training I'm going to have to be running in it, ugh.
But one of the cool things here is that rain barrels seem to be a big thing. Everyone has them and they are in the main part of the home improvement store, not shunted off to an unused corner of the garden section collecting dust. And they are big, at least 6 feet high. The house I'm renting has one, but I just discovered it is not hooked up for some reason so I need to figure out how to do that so I can be ready for the spring.
I had a rain barrel back in MI and it was very handy for keeping my seedlings, blueberries and other plants watered, without having to turn on the taps and pay the water company.
