When there is so much waterPosted: December 6, 2010
That your rainwater tank is overflowing and you have to connect the hose and let some of it run down the gutter it is very important to make the most of the situation. So Daniel and I did indeed make the most of the over supply of water both from the sky and the tank on Saturday and sailed paper boats down the gutters in our street. He literally immersed himself in the experience, crawling along in the water in the gutter and floated each little boat until it was well, pulp. Then we made some more and kept going. We did lots of walking up and down in the rain, had lots of scientific discussions and generally had a great time. I hadn’t realised that waterproofing, wind speed, water volume and the cleanliness of our neighbours’ gutters would make it into the conversation but they did.
