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.

Saturday Evening Post…

10:52 pm - 34 degrees - 37+ mph winds...

A small glimpse into our lives as we live off-grid… sort of like eves dropping.  It may be a thought, quote or a conversation; funny, sweet or sad; but it will always be true.  We will see if it resonates with you…


{messaging back and forth}
Tony:  “I hit a bird or something on the gravel road this morning.  Something big and dark hit the windshield.”
Me:  “Big Foot threw something at you!”
Tony:  “Looked almost like a big chunk of bark.  Wasn’t stopping to find out LOL.”
Me:  “Big Foot!!!”

Where Is Winter...

6:02 pm - 38 degrees - lightly scattered clouds, 37+ mph winds...

Is it really winter?  Last weekend we had temps in the mid 60s to low 70s!  This past week the temps have been in the 50s.  


The temps are slowly dropping this weekend so maybe there is hope of snow?!  Oh please, oh please, oh please!!!  It's just not "winter" without the fluffy white stuff!

Here are some pictures of winter from previous years...

New Year...

1:16 pm - 48 degrees - cloudy...

It’s hard to believe that I’m writing about the holiday season in past tense already, where did 2014 go?  It seems that each year goes by faster and faster.

Both kids are back in school, the holiday and birthday dust has finally settled, and life on the mountain is slowly returning to our version of normal.  That means...


...blowing, plowing or playing in the snow when there is some...


...storm clean-up and burning debris when the weather allows...


...grilling cheesy elk burgers on the bbq in 35 degree rainy weather...


...and enjoying the amazing sunsets.  I love living in the mountains.
