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.

Winter Storms...

3:15 pm - 36 degrees - thick clouds...

We are once again in between storm systems.  The last round of storms brought about a foot of new snow, only problem was that it was very west snow so it settled down to about 5” of snow slush – looks like snow, but when you step in it, your foot prints turn to slush.


The snowflakes turned into pelting waves of freezing rain which left a ¼” of ice over everything.





Then the wind started to howl, along with the pelting waves of freezing rain, you started to hear the pop and crack of branches breaking all around from the strain of the heavy ice.





Although this last round of storms left a mess of broken branches and tree limbs behind, thankfully that was the only damage we sustained.
