Rain, thankfully

Post placeholder image

The lighthouse still relies on a rainwater cistern for water supply. The rain rolls off the slate roof, runs along the wide gutters, pours through the downspouts, and collects in the cistern. The cistern can hold over 5,000 gallons of water and has never run out, as far as I know. Nevertheless, it is a relief now that it is raining after a dry spell this month.
