Rig up a very small tarp to funnel rain water into a large container. I have 2 of those 20 gallon plastic pails that people put kegs in for field parties I'm filling.

My wife works for the Post Office in Ringoes, NJ.

They sent everyone home.

Sorry, no mail folks!
That is actually a myth.

Dog went to my cousins last night instead. The Miata is safely tucked away in my mother's boyfriend's service station. We have a few beds in the back of the locker room. Won't be ideal, but better than trying to drive in midst of it tonight.

I'll update later.

I'm sure it's been done. Rain from this storm will be some of the cleanest rain water you can get. since it's moving west off the Atlantic and the early rain bands have pretty well washed the atmosphere clean of dust, pollen and pollutants. The only problem with rain water is it will be very low in nutrients for the yeast so some yeast nutrient would be a good idea.

So, here's my idea.

We have a pergola in the back yard. I tie a sheet to the four corners and place something heavy in the center with my pot under that point. The sheet should filter out leaves and debris and funnel the water into the pot.

Wounder if you would have to adjust the ph or whatever. Because of the acid.
