Its good we were prepared, and probably good too that it turned out to be a non issue.

One way many can benefit is to have a rain collection barrel that collects water from your roof. easy to install for watering outside plants. I have two and the nutrients from the rain water are ,much better than water out of a faucet. I caution everyone not to drink rain watering even precipitation that falls away from the city. There are still too many harmful pollutants. Don't water vegetables, as they too will absorb the pollutants.

Very interesting Rio Grande flow data from the USGS.

http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nm/nwis/uv/...

The flow went from an extraordinary low of about 50 cubic feet per second (cfs) to about 4,000 cfs after 3 days of storm. She is still roaring at 3,000 cfs.

Well, there are the aluminum and barium salts that are raining down on us with increasing frequency... Oh wait. Maybe you don't believe in that.

But then there are the birds and squirrels that go poo on your roof. Oh wait. Are those the sources of nutrients?

But aside from those quibbles, I agree with you. I would just add the appropriate filters for your rainwater collection system.

Why thank you,yes. I do believe in our government and special interest groups spraying a complete toxin of chemicals in our upper atmosphere. It will be interesting 50 years years from now how dramatically our birth rate for women has diminished.

Make sure you let him know the Rio Grande doesn't come anywhere near OKC. He's tried to convince me it does in the past<sigh>.

You might let him know too that the above data would render a rain barrel mute<G>!

Lol, by prepared I was thinking more of a public notice as opposed to some real emergency preparedness<G>.

Lol, simple minds are easily amazed by your ilk, only someone with a poached brain would ponder something like that. Have you looked at a map yet and found that the Rio Grande doesn't run thru OKC<snicker>?
