|Let there be… water! From our center
hatch, to our dining table.
It’s Not a Curse, It’s a Creative Opportunity
SPLASH! The table and I got more water than the plate retained.
|A puny, temporary water catchment system. Seemed smarter
than watering down my mimosa or splashing off my plate
“Hey, we now have a water catchment system!” Wayne joked. “A pretty pathetic one.” Yup; a water catchment system akin to minor Chinese water torture — slow, incessant and annoying.
We’re keeping our tanks supplied with water from our slow gallon-a-minute water maker (it desalinates and purifies seawater). When the sun’s not shining enough to provide sufficient power from our solar panels, we run our generator to power the watermaker. We’re very good at minimizing our water use – typically we use about 2-5 gallons a day total for everything for the two of us. Yes, we do take daily showers, though I wash my hair a lot less often these days (click here to find out why).
|Wayne’s expression says it all!
It was still raining.
