Re: now wall of water?weather rant now: flooding


Hi Donna/Pam,
Yeah, what Pam said.  I thought at first that they were like the
multicolored, multihooked, really garish fishing lure that is guaranteed to
catch everything.  (when in reality it only catches fishermen)  But they
really work, if you try to use them, make sure you follow the advise about a
little chlorine bleach in the water you put into the walls, as it keeps them
clear.  Honest, they are a great invention.  Rich in Z-5, where is was 2
this morning.
