I have wanted a rain barrel for some time now. After I found out the City of Milwaukee had them for sale for a cheaper price than one you could get at the store, I decided to do a google search to see if Iowa City did the same thing. They do…but only 1 day each year. I put a link out on Facebook and one of my friends said she really wanted one too so we hopped in her truck bright and early this morning and off we were! The sale started at 8am and we got in the car line to get ours at 8:15. We pulled away with our rain barrels at 9:15! They had a total of 300 for sale and by the time we got there it looked like they had around 100 left. Now I just have to get it set up in the back yard and I’m all ready to water!
