Rain Barrel Half Full
It finally rained last night! I got up a 5:00AM to check on the rain barrel. (I know...I may need some type of intervention.) According to my rain gauge, we were blessed with one inch. It filled the rain barrel half way, which is about 20 gallons. Can you believe that just one side of that little shed roof enables us to collect 20 gallons per inch of rain? The greenish white stuff floating in the water is not pickle juice! It is pollen from the PA Hemlocks. It puts a green dusting on everything this time of year...until it rains.
