With California facing dire water shortfalls after the driest year in recorded state history, Gov. Jerry Brown has called on residents of the Golden State to conserve water "in every way possible."
I figured that I could buy a couple of cheap rain barrels, stick them under the downspouts of our Oakland house and be done with it. We have one 60-gallon rain barrel already that we got a few years ago, when the city of Oakland had them available at a discount. But there's a lot more to learn about rain barrels than I first realized.
