RAIN

OK it is finally raining here. I understand that it rained just a little bit here while we were on vacation in Hawaii, that was the end of October. Since then it has rained twice but each time for only like 5 minutes. You know enough to wet the pavement then it stopped. So nothing that amounted to anything. And we are in such dire need of water here. We have really started to conserve in our house. Other than the usual, don't let the water run while you are brushing your teeth, we are saving the water we used to waste while waiting for it to turn hot for a shower etc. This water is saved in a rain barrel (since we haven't had any rain, LOL) and we use it for our chickens and rabbits.

It is amazing how much water is wasted just waiting for it to get hot. I was shocked. Enough to water our chickens and rabbits and have water left. But today it is raining, hopefully all day, I have never been so glad to see the rain. YAY!!
