- Additional note 2: We rely on tank water for drinking.
As soon as I recognized the spraying, I covered the inlets to our water
tanks with boards, my reasoning being that the crap would land on our roof,
and the next rain would wash it into our tanks, and then we'd be drinking

out of the guttering, over the boards and down onto the ground bubbled
as it hit the ground. Not small bubbles like foam, but larger, soap-like
