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.

April Snow...

34 degrees - 10:47 am - snowing...

Drip, drip, drop little April showers?  Hmmmm...not quite.  This morning there were snowflakes kissing the windows rather than raindrops.  The only drip, drip, drops we hear are from the drops of melting snow falling from the trees.  Spring, you’re such a tease.  I thought we agreed that Winter was over.  Hopefully this will be Winter’s last parting gift.

It’s snowing so hard right now…it’s weird.  We had very little snow left on the ground when we left for the beach earlier this week.  Now we are back home and the ground is once again covered in a blanket of white.

With Easter just a few short days away... we might just have a white Easter.  The kids may just have to snowshoe around while they are out hunting for Easter eggs.  That could be fun.

Here are some pictures from this week...

For Spring Break we escaped to Long Beach and...

...fed the birds...

...enjoyed running around on the sandy beach...

...we snuck away for a few hours to go to Cape Disappointment...

...my niece Joslyn tried to fly with the birds...

...it was a bit windy out...

...we gathered up some driftwood to take back to the beach property...

... the kids played 'Don't Break the Sugar Bowl' - Caitlyn won...
... and now we are back home again...
...and it's snowing.
