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.

It's Still Coming Down...

30 degrees outside - 5:50 pm - 3+ feet of snow and still snowing...

{Update:  30 degrees outside - 7:33 pm - 3+ feet of snow and still snowing...}

Tony called at 5:15 pm to tell me he was about 10 minutes away, but if he wasn’t home by 6 pm to call our neighbor and send him down with the snowblower to dig him out.  6 pm rolled around and Tony still wasn’t home so I called our neighbor and found out that the snowblower had just broken.  Our neighbor then snowshoed down to the excavator to see if he could use that to clear the road and met Tony who was snowshoeing his way up the hill.  It is now 7:30 pm and Tony has just made it home.  It isn’t the first time Tony has had to snowshoe his way home from our gate, which is just under ¾ of a mile all up hill.
