Our New Rain Barrel

I got this rain barrel from Amazon (at an end of summer sale). I was going to store it until spring but when Hurricane Sandy was forecast we went ahead and installed it under a downspout which sometimes flooded part of the yard. It worked well; no flooding in that spot and a supply of emergency water if needed. It's not drinking water but would do for flushing toilets if we had lost power and thus the use of the well. 
In the summer I'll use the water from this for watering plants.
