Who'll Stop The Rain

Isn't "Who'll Stop The Rain" a CCR song?  Anyway, it's illegal in Colorado to stop the rain, even on your own property.

But according to the state of Colorado, the rain that falls on [Kris] Holstrom's property is not hers to keep. It should be allowed to fall to the ground and flow unimpeded into surrounding creeks and streams, the law states, to become the property of farmers, ranchers, developers and water agencies that have bought the rights to those waterways.

Apparently, Kris Holstrom was collecting rainwater from her gutters and using it to water her garden.

What a thief!
