"Das Boot" has arrived on Nob Hill Drive!

It appeared like a shadow from the murky waters of the North Atlantic, gray as the ever-present mist over the cold and unforgiving ocean, barely distinguishable from its surroundings. Just like straight out of Wolfgang Peterson's movie "Das Boot". But it is not a submarine- it is our rainwater tank. And it is not going to dive into the waters, but get buried in the dirt and filled with water- Anyway, it is almost a shame to hide this thing away in the ground, because it looks really cool. But it will serve its purpose to store 1500 gallons of rainwater from our roofs and help reducing the water usage of the Nob Hill Haus. So take a final look at the submarine before it dives away- never to be seen again...
