India's previous heaviest rainfall, recorded in the northeastern town of Cherrapunji - one of the rainiest places on Earth - was 33 inches on July 12, 1910
people who dont think the weather pattern is changing and becoming more violent due to global warming need to wake up already

Would that be when the coal burning steam trucks are delivering heating coal to our suburban homes?
As an update since I'm back on the rainwater system, I have only used the city water 3 weeks out of the last 27.

We have a friend who runs a vineyard who says he will give us all the old wine barrels we want, but he's concerned that the leaching of old wine residue back into the rainwater will render it unusable.
1. Is the use of old wine barrels discouraged because of old wine residue 'ruining' the water for irrigation purposes?
2. If not, is the hassle of hooking up 6+ barrels worth it vs. buying a 500+ gallon tank?
If the answer to 1. is 'no', I might even have a 'hybrid' system, where I buy a 500 gallon tank for one section of the yard where the garden and most trees will be, and they put in a couple of wine barrels for the other side of the house where the rest of the trees will be.
We also have sheep, and I'd like to find out if I can capture rainwater for them off the barn roof into wine barrels.
I found an interesting comparison of the different rainwater storage alternatives at http://www.harvesth2o.com/rainwaterstorage.shtml
