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.

Windstorms...

1:06 pm - 44 degrees - raining...

The nights are getting colder, the mornings are getting darker, the constant rain has returned, and the wind has been howling.

Over the past few weeks we have had several windstorms with winds reaching 70+ mph that have resulted in a lot of debris and several downed trees.


We did have one afternoon last week where it stopped raining long enough for us to get some of the storm debris cleaned up.

Tony limbed and cut the downed trees...


...so I could burn them.

  
With winter right around the corner, we’re trying to keep yard debris down to a minimum before everything gets covered in a blanket of snow.  Last week the mountain received a light dusting, so we know the snow is on its way.

{P.S. – Sorry for the lack of posts lately, we have been experiencing technical difficulties with the internet.  It’s frustrating but it happens.}
