Actually, just boiling wouldn't be enough if it had environmental pollutants. That's why I said outside an urban area, as I assume that rain that has fallen in, say, London, will be fairly well contaminated by nasty chemicals.
No, for once it's not raiing! It's been a lovely sunny aftertoon here. But the rainbutt smells gorgeous, and when dh was sweeping water out of our courtyard he raised such a stunning fragrance...mmmm. Until we got a rainbutt I had no idea that rainwater smells good!
