Storm came through last night…

…announcing itself with big wind.


It was cold enough by the time the storm broke that the snow stayed dry, so I could bundle up and clean everything off with a broom. We even got drifts!


Tiny, pathetic drifts, because we seldom get much snow at any one time. But genuine snow drifts. And best of all…


The wind blew hard enough across the Lair’s roof that I didn’t have to risk broken bones cleaning off solar panels. Now if this tiny bit of sun we have at the moment would only stick around – but we’re not forecast to really see the sun before tomorrow. Batteries are feeling it.

And now I must go, because due to scheduling weirdnesses the Monday morning water run falls on a Tuesday this week. Hope you are all staying warm. I am, but that’s about to change for a couple of hours.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    My wife and I were in Arizona once when it had snowed in the Superstition Mountains. It was beautiful, and we did a very nice hike on the trails.

    You know, Joel, from that last picture it would look like there is enough room on the roof for a second set of PV panels.gg

  2. Joel says:

    I have four other panels on a ground mount. Easier to clean off.

  3. Cederq says:

    Wouldn’t a small platform just behind the Lair be safer to climb too and stand on while you sweep the panels off?

  4. Kentucky says:

    Tried to send ya a couple of inoffensive emails but they got kicked back . . . “Junk Mail rejected”.

    Neither had anything to do with, uh, “current events”.

    What have I done?

  5. Joel says:

    Kentucky: I have no idea. Last time I had trouble receiving mail it was because I had neglected to clear out the webmail inbox. I’ve done that now, so if the problem is on my end it should be fixed.

To the stake with the heretic!
