We had a subtropical storm today. This video shows the impact and how we try to make the most of the water that falls on our property.

I am doing it tonight.  I got rain... lots of rain... 1mm more and it would have been in the house.

You can do a followup vid , Andrew, as the BOM has warned us about the next few days. 

Keep them cameras rolling!

And keep singin' in the rain...

How it pours, pours, pours,
In a never-ending sheet!
How it drives beneath the doors!
How it soaks the passer's feet!
How it rattles on the shutter!
How it rumples up the lawn!
How 'twill sigh, and moan, and mutter,
From darkness until dawn.

-- ROSSITER JOHNSON, Rhyme of the Rain
