Almost every afternoon there is a gathering of clouds and a suggestion of rain. Some days it is a tease and some days, delivery, but for the first year in several, the monsoons arrived, acting “normally” (as if weather has a true “normal”) .
The dogs can drink and the horses like the rain water we collect for them, too! With this type of water storage, we also got some monsoon mosquitoes–monsquitoes. Listerine, the latest miracle product, is supposed to kill them in water barrels and repel them if you spray yourself (smells lovely!). Dryer sheets might work on a person as well. (Have not tried either.)
