After such a dry year in 2011, everyone in the area is delighted to see this year’s rain season kick off with a bang. So far, we’ve had over 5″ and everything is soaking wet.
The grass is starting to grow and transform our view with a sheen of green.
Our catchment system has already caught about 4300 gallons of water. Even if we don’t get another drop of rain, which is hopefully not the case, we would have enough to last us the year. It’s been so exciting standing up in the bedrooms and watching the gutters spout forth a stream of water. Leo especially loves to keep up updated, second by second, of how much water is flowing.
We are hopeful that this will be a decent year.
