Who'll stop the rain?

It has been a pretty wet month of May thus far. We've seen pretty much every variety of non-frozen precipitation, from drifting mist to Texas toad-strangler, and one form or another has appeared, however briefly, every day for the past week or so.

It's probably got something to do with the fact that my roomie installed that bit of gutter on the eaves over the back door...

Pfft, it keeps the dust down.

Besides, look at it this way, at least the SoBro hippies are getting showers.

Middle of May and only 50-ish wet degrees. Gotta love it.

If you build it, they will come?

Like NJT said, rain is MemTest for guttering and roofing.

(Which probably wouldn't have occurred to me if I wasn't running MemTest right now...)

So how's that gutter and downspout working? Any overflow? Have you considered directing some of the output to a rain barrel for watering flowers/veggies with natural precip when it hasn't rained in awhile?

Inquiring minds, and all that...
