Copper Drain System (High Adventures with Emily)  

I so have to go back when it's raining...

that sort of system is my favorite thing ever.

I'd never seen one before! Emily and I were totally intrigued and before I noticed the drain into the ground I was thinking maybe it was a really elaborate tea candle chandelier ;) Emily figured it out when she noticed it was connected to the above drain pipe.

Wicked, wicked cool. Pretty.

Shiny. ;>

It's called a waterchain.
They are fun.

Ah! Thank you :)

Have you seen one in action while it's raining?

Indeed. It's beautiful.
My parents have 2 set up, each with a water pump so they don't have to wait for it to rain. ;)

I know!

Something NEW! Something different!

This totally redeems the freak out I had in the Roman section of the British Museum when I realized too much hasn't changed.

I can't wait to see it in action. I should probably make friends with home owners because I think they're going to have to get used to me standing captivated and slack-jawed in front of their house on a semi-regular basis.

It's a rain chain! I Googled to see if I could find you a video of one with running water, and it amuses me greatly that my search was successful on, naturally, RainChains.com.

Although I didn't notice them for a long time, these things are all over in Japan. I first saw one at the back side of Karesansui and then I started seeing them all over, even at Noriko's folks' house. It's a beautiful alternative to those folded-aluminum ducts we use here.
