Finally the side of logic and reason has prevailed by the government (amazing, yes). They realized that rain barrels aren't the devil so now people don't have to hide them as they collect. We've never hid our barrels because we really don't care.
|This is probably a real thing|
There are people who are worried about rain barrels being a breeding ground for mosquitoes, I suppose they never heard of screens.
The government still owns the water, but us citizens are now allowed to temporarily store it without fear of being killed. Now the raindrops can use whatever barrel they identify with, what a grand design.
