WATER CRISIS IN SPAIN.
After reading about the shortage in northern Spain, so much so that water had to be brought from France by container ship to Barcelona, and the crises on the Costas threatening the ban on water for swimming pools, we jumped at the chance for two more 1000 litre water containers.
We had to wrestle them off the back of a trailer and dismantle the metal cages so's we could manoevre these big tanks into position at the back of the green shed and the back of the house. The containers had to be rolled and lifted - what a lark for the two of us, who had to stop for frequent rests. The cats looked on in amusement.
We had to paint over the surfaces then so that the water didn't go mildewy and then lift the containers back into the metal cage mounted on pallets. Pheww. Some more guttering has to be erected at the back of the house now, and the tube modified at the back of the shed. We probably won't have any significant rainfall until October but it's a comforting feeling that we will eventually have 5000L of rainwater.
