It never rains in California-NOT?
Our cistern wasn't even dry for a 3 weeks when the first rain of the season hit and filled almost half of it. The 1.5 days of slow rain have brought us about 3-4" of water- 1/4 of the annual total. The water is also very clear as the picture shows.The drop in temperatures also helps to keep the moisture of the rain longer in the ground and we could turn off the irrigation system on Monday. (Did YOU turn off yours, too?)
