Please rain

It's our fault.  There was a ninety percent chance of rain today.  Ninety percent.  Did it rain?  Not really.  Want to know why?  Because we installed a new rain barrel over the weekend, that's why.  Last year when we installed our first barrel we hurried to get it in before a predicted day of rains came, but the day brought no rain (after the installation, that is).  In fact, it was over a week before we got the chance to try it out.  Well, we've committed the same blunder again.  So, blame us.  It will probably rain some time next week.
