River Action 60-gallon rain barrels available now

Every gallon of rainwater collected keeps it out of our already swollen rivers and streams, and potentially out of your basement or business. Every gallon counts. The 60-gallon recycled food-grade barrel includes a lid, mosquito netting, standard downspout diverter (2" x 3"), spigot and two overflow attachments.

January 25 - Cold
Author: Bill Streever
From avalanches to glaciers, from seals to snowflakes, and from Shackleton's expedition to The Year Without Summer, Bill Streever journeys through history, myth, geography, and ecology in a year-long search for cold -- real, icy, 40-below cold. In July he finds it while taking a dip in a 35-degree Arctic swimming hole; in September while excavating our planet's ancient and not so ancient ice ages; and in October while exploring hibernation habits in animals, from humans to wood frogs to bears.
