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.

Wildlife on the Mountain...

33 degrees outside - 10:40 am - snowing and windy with a windchill of 24 degrees...

a pair of Pileated Woodpeckers searching for their breakfast

Nearly as large as a crow, the Pileated Woodpecker is the largest woodpecker in most of North America.  They can get anywhere between 15.7”-19.3” in length and have a wingspan around 26”-29.5”.

Cool Fact --- Pileated Woodpecker pairs stay together in their chosen territory all year round.  They will defend the territory in all seasons, but will tolerate floaters during the winter.
