how come they, hurricane hermine

was in grocery store early on sunday am
thats when i shop for groceries at 600am because
the store is near a large retirement community
later in the day there are a lot of people there that
look like my brothers and sisters
they are pretty aggressive with their carts

the produce department clears out a lot of produce
that looks better than what is in my refrigerator
(my wife she likes it to be brown before she gets rid of it)
they just junk it out
they dont donate it to poor or soup kitchens etc
they wont give it to me for my chickens
it could even be used to make compost


hurricane hermIne just hit south texas last night
it is headed just west of us which means we will get the eastern storms
that may mean 4-10 inches of rain over the next 24 hours
we sure need the rain

have got my tanks ready to accept all that rain
even am bringing out my  red neck 5 gallon buckets
anything that will hold water is used to catch the rain
even back my truck on incline so can catch water in it
want all that rain to stay on my property
yesterday even emptied some of my water from my tanks onto
my yard
my mulch and crushed granite walkway acts like a large sink
to hold all that water
the limestone walls and limestone or wood edging around
landscape beds acts like a minny dam to hold the water back
so it can soak into the ground

in my pastures and yard there are enough deep holes to hold a lot of water
as it as been dry here this summer since june

dont let your neighbor or your sewer system get all the runoff from your rain

these are all a way to do rainwater collection besides using rain water collection
into water tanks

tomorrow follow up on hurricane hermine
