The leftovers from Hurricane Hanna are supposed to hit us tomorrow with rain all day and 30 mph winds. On the radio they said we could experience power outages but hopefully we won't! It seems like everyone gets in a tizzy and runs off to the grocery store to strip the shelves. The last big storm knocked our power out for 3 days and of course we didn't have running water either since the well needs electricity to pump it up. It would be nice to have one of those old fashioned sinks that has a hand pump and then you pump out how much water you need.
I've been thinking about setting up a rain barrel water system on the farm with the house and all the barns. I mean that is quite a lot of water that could be collected.
