We had a half an inch overnight and it's still coming down. I'm at home today (yay!) so now I'm the one who has to walk the dog in the rain. I am actually hoping for at least an inch, because it has been a while since we had any rain.

I guess doing an inventory makes you realize how much stuff there is. I wonder why seeing those images make me think I just might need one of those thingys. Maybe two.

Mark - this is a decidedly delicious distraction. Completely unexpected. I'm very much enjoying it. Our rains that deluged the end of October terminated just short of midnight on Oct 31, so yes, this is the first rain since then. Here, it's surprising how moist the soil underneath still was even after nine days without rain. Nine warm days.

I like the wye, myself. There's the reverse device that I didn't show - a siamese. That's where you input two smaller, say 1.5" streams and output a single larger, perhaps 3" one. All the charms of friction, with few of the advantages of just hooking up a big hose to the truck. We don't have one of those, and the purchase of one would be an unjustifiable extravagance.

Sure would like to have another hydrant valve, though. We only have one, for the tanker, and need one for the pumper.

Robin - we laugh about it. One FF tried to defuse the issue by talking about malley to malley, femalley to femalley (pronounced as tamale). We laughed more about that.
