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.

Booming Thunder and Light Show...

10:46 am - 62 degrees - overcast...

We can get some pretty awesome storms up here, which we love to watch.

Although it was one of the best nighttime lightning shows that we’ve had up here, even though it didn’t last very long, it was a little too close for comfort.  One large bolt of lightning even struck the mountain, which was pretty awesome to see. 

While Tony and I were enjoying the flashy lightshow and booming thunder, that occasionally shook the entire house...the kids slept on.



Once this foggy cloud cover dissipates a bit (the mountain is currently hiding), aircraft and fire crews will be out roaming the area for any possible fires that may have been caused by lightning strikes.  Hopefully there are none!
