    The Drought is OVER!!!

    Good grief, I'm soaked to the bone now (had to protect my frail little dews, lol), but the drought is definitely over!
    It just stormed last night, and this is the third storm this week!!! Looks like I'll now have about 60 gallons of water saved up =D
    I took a few piccies:

    My 42 gallons of rainwater as of this morning.

    It is coming down HARD! And possibly ruining all my stuff which is stored in the empty jacuzzi =\

    My 20+ gallon drum collecting the good stuff. That's also my "Super YumYum" Pineapple Plant
    And the best part is, I'm on a laptop, so I needn't worry about the thunder and such

    I am very wet though. And cold =(

    I wish it would rain here. I've been buying 4 gallons a day. I'm close to buying more water so far this year, then all of last year.

    I go through 10-12 gallons a week, typically. It's a pain, but why I have so many jugs now XD

    We've been getting surprise thunderstorms recently. Only problem is they last for ten minutes and dump ten inches at a time. If you have to set something up each time, you've got no chance, especially since they have no warning...

    Edit: what's that little lizard in the first pic?

    I know. The weather is so wonky. It's already hit 98 degrees some days, which usually doesn't happen until August or September. And even though it should've been raining since April, to have such heavy storms in so little time is most unusual.

    50 gallons a week for me. Sometimes more.

    Whewwwwwww! I'd have to have pure tap water to manage that. @.@
    Your grow list is quite stunning though. Very well rounded, methinks.
