Here Comes the Sun!

The optimist within me wants to announce: “It’s been sunny all month long!”

Sweeps Season

By , November 16, 2015

Snow has fallen periodically on our homestead since Halloween. Most days it briefly covers the new solar panels, then melts away without needing our help. The night of November 13th we got several inches and a hard freeze. The next morning, I went out to sweep snow off our new array for the first time (see Power Shift: The Plan in Place).
