Rain Chain

Not long after we bought our new home, but before we shifted in, my youngest daughter and I were visiting outside looking longingly at the house and talking about when my husband and I would shift in.

She noticed a thick chain hanging down from the corner of the verandah roof and mentioned it to me. I said I wondered what it was for.  My smart daughter told me it was for the rain to go down off the roof.  She is very much into architecture and houseplans so had obviously seen this kind of thing before but I hadn’t.  It intrigued me.  However, I’m unable to jiggle it to make the water keep coming down if a leaf blocks it, without getting quite wet as I’m not tall enough to reach the top.  I leave that to hubby!
