Every time we have yet another torrential, all-day rain like the one seen yesterday, I look forward to the Town announcing the “End of the drought”. Sadly, that announcement has been postponed again, and it’s starting to look like NO AMOUNT OF RAIN will ever solve this problem.

As usual, Fountain puts the great brain to work, and out pop two great ideas!
