Rainboats

So you’ve might have read that we here in the South have run into a bit of a water shortage. It’s been bad and now getting worse - fortunately, we have a little rain headed our way today and during thanksgiving. Thanks rain.

Anyways, I wanted to introduce to you a concept I have called a rainboat. It is essentially a enormous oil tanker - built specifically for capturing rain out at sea. The captains of these vessels would steer close to major storms to capture the falling rain. Look at all the storms out there!

After pulling in a decent haul of freshwater, the tankers return to port, connect to a pipeline that runs to a resevoir and offload their haul.

The idea is pretty impractical, but desperate times…
