I just did the math. Every inch of rain that lands on Mount Fishmore equates to approximately 1,221,947 gallons of water. If you consider the entire watershed, and not just our 45 acre slice, that amount goes up to 8,765,005 gallons of water per inch of rain!

A good rule of thumb is: "If you want an accurate one-liner saying, don`t get involved in hydrodynamics".

I really like this video. I haven't finished watching the whole thing yet, and I don't yet understand what this has to do with water, but I am definitely excited for them to start the demo

Edit: Look at that guy bunny hoppin' 🤣

This guy has an entire series about building and maintaining a micro hydro power generator at his house in Colorado. The system is monitored by drone in winter to capture video of the intake and outlet areas.

This guy grows his own food in a permaculture garden. He's building a pond to collect rainfall. It's getting cold and he has to release the water from his rain barrels before the lines freeze. While releasing his stored rain water he digs into the soil to control where the water will flow during a storm

This guy used a solar panel and a 55 gallon drum on his roof to store energy and use it to power lights on his porch with a small turbine. Apparently an entire 55 gallon drum of water with 7 meters of height is only equivalent to the energy of 1-2 AA batteries 🤯
