Winter Wonderland
No new "content," so to speak. Just some pictures from the last snowfall we got. I thought it looked pretty.

So yeah, it snowed a lot. Makes for some pretty lousy days for the solar panels. On the plus side, though, my water cistern is now completely full. Provided that my usage doesn't go up, I should have enough water now to last me until April. So, yay for that. On to winter wonderland pictures!

This is what I saw out my front door - first one is straight ahead, second is turning my head to the left.

Here's a little further up the drive:

And some images of the tiny house taken from the banks of the pond, first from the near side, then from the far side:

Next we have Barney's favorite part of the property, the tire pile. I found about 30 tires riddled about the property (more if you count tractor tires stacked near the front) so I gathered them together into a pile for now. Later I may ram some dirt into them Earthship-style, but for now they amuse the pooch.

Of course, playing in tires all day can wear a mutt out.

So, that's it for now. Like I said, it's been gloomy, so I've been in power conservation mode more often than I'd like. I plan on rigging up a generator to top off my batteries, but for now I'm just going to have to keep it short.

How much snow did you get? We got just enough to coat the ground for a few days and that was it. But you are just a couple counties north though.

Not much at all, really. A couple of inches, maybe, and it has already melted.

Generator sizing

Don't skimp on the capacity of the generator when you start looking. Consider if you want to listen to a small generator running all day, or a big one for half an hour!

Re: Generator sizing

Unfortunately, price is going to have to be the major consideration in this purchase. Can't buy the big one if I don't have the money for it.
