Oh..I am so happy!! We got 1 1/10" inch rain from Lee. e I collected 240 gallons of rain water....that will be enuff for 2 rounds of laundry..watering what is left of the flower gardens and tomatoes for the season. Hopefully.....precipitation will increase as winter nears..and I know our water usage will decrease. No more watering gardens ..and the chicken tractor will be getting a newspaper floor and wood shavings for winter. I will merely scoop it out for cleaning, and replace it. That should help keep it sanitary and warm for the winter.
