We have home-made rain barrels for sale, just in time for the upcoming showers and elevated water restrictions. These are 55 gallon plastic drums that stored car wax in their previous life. In this life, they have been well rinsed and affixed with a spigot and screen top. We offer these to anyone interested at $50 each. First come, first serve, we have limited supply at this point, but will continue to make them to meet the drought demands.

What is this world coming to. I saw this aberration in the Lowe's parking lot. This is someone's leisurely vehicle. Believe it folks, it is a recreational SEMI! Watch out for your children.
