On Monday evening, we had a large storm system pass through the area around 7:30PM. I went outside to investigate why I was seeing so much run off in my back yard (answer: clogged gutters. Again. Despite repeated efforts to clean and guard them.). Since I was already soaked, I decided to go ahead and try a rainwater collection experiment I've wanted to do for about a year now.
I'm new to posting cell phone video to the internet. Be sure to post a comment below if you like watching short videos on prepping, as it may inspire me to do more in the future. Thanks to my awesome stepdaughter (whom I call Tox) for shooting this video for me as I narrated.
I hope this gives you some ideas. Be sure to watch both parts of the video.
