this morning noticed that under certain trees, notably evergreens like pine and coast oak, the fog condenses into a slow but steady "rain". setting up a system for collecting this should yield drinkable water in places where there isn't too much toxic air pollution.

I found two unused garbage bags along the road the other day on my bike trip, and put them in my pocket. pulled them out under the fig tree that overhangs the sidewalk a block west of the high school, and shook the branch; got 4 figs out of maybe 10 that fell. need a bigger tarp for sure.
