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.

Cold Bitter Wind...

23 degrees - 9:30 am - blue sky, sunshine, 67-72 mph wind...
 
It’s 23 degrees outside, but with a 67-72+ mph wind it feels like -1 degree outside.  I could put up with the cold, honestly I could, but this wind is just killing me!  Fighting with doors to either open or close them.  Trudging over cold ice and snow, trying not to fall down or be blown away.   Bitter wind chapping our lips, biting our faces and making its way through the ten layers of clothes to chill everyone to their very core...it’s a bit depressing.  It is a gorgeous blue sky sun shining kind of day and that darn cold bitter wind is keeping everyone inside.
 
I Googled 'Wind Chill Chart' to find out what the wind chill factor was...burrrrr!
