Let It Rain!

Yeah, I know, all we have in the forecast is subfreezing temperatures and snow, but I am ready for rain!! I just bought a rain barrel! I bet you are wondering why on earth I would want such a thing. Well, I took the kids to the Museum of Science and Industry today, and in one of the exhibits about green things happening in Chicago, there was a picture of a rain barrel attached to a downspout. Of course, I stood there in awe and said to the boys, "How cool is that! Where can I get one?!" and came home and ordered one on eBay. So now the questions are "When can I put it out?" and "How many ways can I use the collected water?" Hmmm....



And now I am off to look for a solar teapot...

Actually, I have been thinking about getting one of these myself -- would work great for the garden.
Let me know how this works.
