blame it on the rain

22 Jan

It’s raining (and will continue to do so for the next few days according to the weather forecast). I usually love the rain, but today just sucked – and the addition of puddles made it worse. 

One really awesome thing about Australia is that they don’t have acid rain (yet). So – most establishments (homes, touristy places, camp grounds) have gigantic rain tanks that look like this:

There’s generally a small faucet at the bottom of the tank so you can fill up a bottle or cup and drink the water from inside! I remember being totally amazed by this. Some people say water is water – but the best water I ever had was from a rain tank in the middle of the Australian Outback.

Also – going along with the title of this post – someone told me yesterday that one of the Milli Vanilli guys committed suicide. I had no idea… it happened back in 1998. How did I miss that sadness? I also just realized that 1998 was 10 years ago – WEIRD!
