Hola, Buenas tardes.
You may recall how smart Senor is.
Long ago he put PVC pipe inside these last columns of the portal.
We are happy to say they work great.
The water runs straight through and down the pipes and out in to the neighboring field.
Some day, when we get around to it, we will put in another cistern to collect all of that water.
For now, I am just happy it works.
Of course, Senor never doubted it.
Yesterday's storm was worth the wait.
The only problem was it came up from the south and the wind was strong and everything got flooded.
Even with the sala roof over the far end of the portal, we still got a tremendous amount of water everywhere.
Tonight we are waiting for the 80% projected rain storm to get here.
But, it is so quiet out there, not a breath of air, very still, no birds, no dogs, no cars, no kids skateboarding down the street...... too quiet for a storm.
