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.

Another Snow Day...

11:47 am - 29 degrees - snowing...

It's another snow day for us (5th one I think). Tony left the house early this morning to blow off the snow/freezing rain/snow that came with the latest winter storm over the weekend.

Just over two hours in the tractor this morning and he's only been able to do one pass about a half mile long down the driveway.  The snow is deep and very heavy and he's sliding around on the icy layer that he hasn't been able to break through yet.  He broke a couple shear pins so he had to come home and grab some more.  Now he's off again to finish blowing the driveway.

The temps have warmed up a bit and the water line to our wash machine has finally thawed out.  It's been frozen for well over a week now.  So I'm busy doing laundry and cleaning house while Tony's clearing the driveway and the kids are playing.  Just a normal winter day on the mountain.
