Rain off my neighbor’s house. He mentioned my rain gutters and how they have this rolling off their roof during storms and that’s exactly why I had the rain gutters put on the house as a condition of buying it. I had to put them on my old house, and my daughter has this problem too. I would have to go out with my puppies when I stayed with her and to get out into the grass, you and the dogs would get soaked.
Rainwater and droplets rushing of the roof into the gutters and down the spout. Someone mentioned capturing the water into a rain bucket to be used on plants in dry spells. Great idea, except that anything that collects water also creates mosquitoes here. So it’s not a good idea to have standing water.
But I do empty my cooled boiling water that I’ve cooked with on the plants. And boiling water on fire ant hills. So at least some of the water doesn’t go to waste. 🙂
Have a beautiful day!!
