    Or you can just buy a plastic trash barrel and stage it to collect rain and/or snow. Then cover afterward. I've been filling used gallon milk jugs all spring and summer long, even though we aren't getting a lot of rain.

    haha, wow, that is a cool idea with the garbage bag
    how do I "stage it"
    LOL! PASTA! thats a great idea too

    I am never going to collect snow--I took lots of samples from around where I live and it was VERY DIRTY--have you ever looked at melted snow through a clear plastic bag or aquarium, you can see lots of dirty particles floating in it!
    (Or maybe, Im just crazy and snow is clean)
    (I will have to try it again this winter)

    thanks to all

    I have my own water distiller. It's called an air conditioner. Seriously, my AC unit has so much water dribbling out of it, I started collecting it and using it on my plants. I can fill a 5 gal. sparkletts bottle in 2 days.

    The more humid it is, the more water comes out. And it's perfectly safe to use on the CP's.
