tote day

First rainstorm of 2012 at 5AM.  Busy morning working out some details for an aerial shoot that some Google Earth folks want to do at TFL next month.  Meanwhile, my buddy Bennett Jones in Alpine brokered a deal on three 300gal IBC totes for me at $150/apiece.  Total rainfall for 2011 was 3.82".  39,55,43, .06",B

Good price on those totes, I could fill a dozen of them here and keep them filled all the time with the rain we get.

May have to (or want to) someday, they are pushing folks here to put meters on their own damn wells, something is up.

Runs around 15 to 20" here. Over a 100" not far from here.

Must be what that twin engine plane that keeps flying around all over the place out here is doing?

Maybe its one of those planes out trying to catch people burning stuff then? I've seen and heard it all over the place (Even down near SB.)

.06" - that's good. Hope you got to capture some of it.

The totes look interesting. Can't figure how you'd need them, but, I know you have a plan.

John, as dry as it has been in the dallas area this past year, we had 3.25 inches rain in the past 2 days (Mesquite).

I hope you do better this year.
