Rain Barrel Line Up

At the crack of 7:30AM I left the house to go get a subsidized rain barrel for my yard. I was hoping to get a couple but didn't organize myself fast enough to enlist the help of neighbours. The deal is you can get one from the region for only $30 but only 1 per family/household. First come first served. Anyway, below is a quick little video of the line up Dad and I had to wait in to pick ours up. It was HUGE!!! Our town is crazy about rain barrels I guess!!

The nice thing was we spent the day out in the yard trying to get things looking good. We finished cleaning up and I saw some dark clouds coming so I thought I might be able to get the down spout in place before the rain started, then I would catch myself some rain. I was totally soaked by the end of it but we now have ourselves a full barrel of rain water which we can use for our garden.

insanity!! I cannot get up that early on a Saturday morning. . its my only sleep in day! The $60 savings is pretty substantial. . guess that's what creates the humungous line up??

Steve had a similar experience last year, but said your line looked a little longer.

Our city does a pre-order, but then you still have to stand in line for 2hrs (or whatever it takes) to pick it up.

We loved using the rain barrel last summer though!
