The Tanks Arrived!

They came on Friday morning at about 11, trundling down the hill on a truck followed by a small crane.  And without much ceremony the crane hoisted them out and positioned them on the concrete pad at the bottom of the slope beside the house.  Alex did not come home after school, and stayed out with friends until late in the evening.  When he staggered in, somewhat the worse for wear, he thought that we had been occupied by an Alien Force.  Too many computer games, obviously...

On Saturday and Sunday Best Beloved, with some help from me from time to time, constructed the hose system that will carry the rain from the initial filter tanks into the storage tanks.  We are still missing some parts, but I will buy those this week and hopefully we will finish the job this weekend and start catching the rain!
