Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Brrr, It's Cold Outside...

23 degrees outside - 8:58 am - clear blue sky, sun is shining and the wind is howling with a wind chill of 16 degrees, brrrr…

the mountian this morning
After the spring like weather last week, my husband and I can understand why the early pioneers eagerly awaited springtime.  We were able to be outside without having to put on five layers of clothes and worry about being blown away by the wind, and we didn’t constantly have to throw more logs on the fire, we actually went a whole day with out the need of a fire, and it was nice. 

ground is frozen
This week the winter weather has returned with bitter cold temps and strong gusty winds.  Yesterday we even had a few hours in the late afternoon where it had snowed but the snow didn’t stick around for long.  Last night the wind was howling with gusts as high as 56 mph. 

Can’t wait for springtime…
