WeatherWise: Keep Mosquitoes and Insects Out of Your Rain Barrel

rainbarrel.jpg

We love our rain barrel. It looks terrific in our back yard and conserves natural rain water for our thirsty shrubs and plants. Tap water maintains plants--they thrive on rain water.

Trouble is, mosquito larvae thrive in warm sitting water, plus beetles, flies, bees and other assorted creepy crawlies fall in. Custom fit your rain barrel with a lid made of small netting. Inexpensive window screening works perfectly and is readily available at your local home center. Alternatively drill large holes 1 to 2 inches in diameter in the rain barrel's lid.

Pachelbel Canon Wind Chime

pcc_2_.jpg

Around here we put the wind to some good use. Not creating energy or anything constructive, just to make us feel better. We all love Johann Pachelbel's celebrated Canon, so we hang this truly magical Woodstock Pachelbel's Canon Chime on our porch to swing in the breeze. We are soothed and serenaded by its resonant tones all year round. There are many other sounds and styles -- popular Woodstock Chimes are precision-tuned and high quality.

While a lot of our world, sadly, is flooding, where we are there isn't even enough rain these days to keep our lawn green. We are praying to the rain gods. If this happens to you too, you can water your property guilt-free just by customizing the watering schedules for your underground sprinkling system with this Rain Bird SST-600I Simple Set 6-Station Indoor Automatic Sprinkler System Timer.

Set this advanced timer and fine tune your watering schedules for each of your lawn areas--grass, shrubs, trees and flower beds. You can conveniently set each watering zone independently as well as the flow rates of each sprinkler type. And when you do finally get a shower, use the rain delay command as needed for manual suspension of a watering cycle.
