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.

Look! Up in the sky...

48 degrees - 8:36 am - beautiful blue sky...

It’s a supermoon!  The full moon in the month of May is known as the “Flower Moon” as in majority of the places flowers are in abundance.  It is also known as the “Full Corn Planting Moon” or the “Milk Moon”.  It is also called a lunar perigee that was later dubbed a “supermoon” by astrologer Richard Nolle back in the 1970s.  The term is used to describe a new or full moon at 90% or more of its closest orbit to Earth.

Last night's "supermoon" was about 221,802 miles away from Earth.
That's about 15,300 miles closer than average, making the moon appear
about 14 percent bigger than it would appear if it were
at its farthest distance during its elliptical orbit.

We were fortunate enough to have clear skies last night so we were able to witness last night’s “supermoon” - the biggest and brightest “supermoon” of 2012.
