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.

Windstorm...

8:42 pm - 36 degrees - rain/snow mix with 70+ mph wind gusts...

We have had a wild windstorm going on since yesterday with winds reaching 70+ mph.  We are so used to the noise of the wind and rain pounding the windows and hitting the metal roof that we usually just sleep through it.  But last night the wind got extra wild and we were woken up several times by things falling down and being blown around.  The wind was so strong that it even blew down five trees that blocked the road off the mountain. 


Well it looks like we are in for another noise night as the storm outside continues to rage on. 

{P.S. - Sorry for the lack of posts so far this month.  We have been experiencing technical difficulties with the internet, and now we are having technical difficulties with uploading photos to the blog.  It's frustrating but it happens.}
