Our friend Jim is having the one year anniversary party for his solar electric system today. I’m going out to help with the grilling and to socialize with a group of people that must be interested in solar or they probably wouldn’t be there. His politics are pretty progressive so I’m sure I will find a lot of things to talk about. I am going to take a Sun Oven along but it doesn’t look like the suns going to be out enough to do anything with it.
It looks like I’m going to have to turn on our gas tankless today, this time of year a few days without the sun will cool it off pretty fast, we use it faster than we make it. The wood cookstove chimney will be installed next week and we should be prepared to keep warm, cook a big pot of soup, make some bread, and heat up the water with wood.
