RE: where is everyone?

	My last Extension Office symposium was on rain gardening. They
brought in a speaker from Texas for he and his family lived only on
collected water from rain systems such as cisterns collecting from roofs,
etc. Also talked on erecting small systems to collect dew as well as rain
for the wildlife... actually ended up creating stations in the wild where
wildlife collected to get a drink. Raingardens and "old fashioned" rain
barrels, collection systems are making a real big comeback. Do a goggle on
rain barrels and you get page after page of hits.
	We installed a rain garden for my wife this late summer. Having rain
barrels installed in two locations for sure this spring. 
	The concepts and projects can be a lot of fun.

I liked the rainwater pillow too, I've fantasized about how we might
collect water in the rainy season. We don't get much rain of course but
if we could store just what runs off the roof it would help.
Things to think about...
