… 55 gallons of rain last night!!
Unbelievable!! My yard–and beyond–was a lake. This morning I discovered the new rain barrel was full to overflowing. **If** I’d had time to connect the two barrels, the second barrel might be full too. First the pictures taken last night and this morning.
Below are pictures taken of the new rain barrel. I believe it is a nice companion for the first barrel. From previous experience, I knew one barrel would fill quickly and I’d need an “overflow.” I never dreamed I’d see that demonstrated within hours after receiving…. Next project: A short piece of garden hose and two hose clamps linking the two barrels. Inexpensive and effortless. ~~ Last picture: A new wind chime with beautiful glass butterfly.
