Galvanized cool.

You may remember that Sara and I went looking for a galvanized tub to use as a pool for Ursula (@2yrs), and found this great company: Dover Parkersburg, from which we bought a really nice 33 gallon tub that's about four feet long. Looking for the site again to show a friend, Sara stumbled on an even better source!...

Behlen is an ranch and farm supply company out in Columbus, Nebraska. They stock lots of big, tough stuff, including a whole line of galvanized and poly stock tanks. These things are all between 1' and 2' deep and come in oblong and circular shapes. They even go up to 10' long! I can imagine hundreds of uses for these things, particularly during these long, hot days of summer. How about a cool pool on the roof of your apartment building? Or a hot tub in winter?
