49 days

It has only rained a tenth of an inch in the last 49 days.  Although I still have about 12,000 gallons on tap, I'm ready for the rainy season to begin...perhaps this week.  94,101,72,0,C

John, How has the big dam project worked?

Thanks, I missed that one. No messing with mother nature when she's worked up.

two questions:

1- how much water would you LIKE to have on hand?

2. how much do your livestock use?

1. As long as we get a minimum of 8" per year, my present storage capacity of 22,000 gallons is sufficient.

2. Ben drinks about 15 gallons per day.

If I remember right, you were going to check into a grant or possibly getting the government to help with a dam project. Did you ever follow up with that thought or was it a lost cause.

I learned that history repeats itself and one can learn from that. But surprised me the most is how we can see the future from economics.
