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.

Spring Is Here...

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

The relentless winter of 2014 continues for much of the U.S., but there is at least some hope (even if it’s only symbolic) for warmer weather – March 20th marked the spring equinox, which signals the end of astronomical winter in the northern hemisphere.

Of course here on the mountain spring was ushered in with a light dusting of snow.

On the bright side (literally), the sun is up for more than 12 hours now, so it’s only a matter of time before spring arrives in earnest!

I’ve already started day dreaming about the warmer days, the start of everything turning green, the fading of the long winter, and getting together with friends and family and firing up the grill. 

We woke up this morning to a blue sky and sunshine!  Knowing that spring has officially arrived, there is now light at the end of the tunnel...and Mother Nature has taken the hint – this weekend is going to be gorgeous!
