On Rain XIV

Down it pours again

Thrown to Earth distainfully

Waste this not, want not


n.b. There is the challenge; water capture, water storage and water recycling required. With long dry periods that end with thunder storms of extreme intensity, such that can wake us from deep sleep, how can the gift of water from the heavens be best utilised? It will just rush off in flash floods if there is no acknowledgement that rainfall is no longer just a few regular showers, but arrives with the banner of “extreme weather event” after many weeks without precipitation.
