offgrid xmas

It’s continuing to be very mild weather, we sat outside drinking coffee yesterday. Right now at midday it’s 14 degrees.

So quite often the house feels colder than outside. We still need to heat in the evening and mornings are still hard to get out of bed, but it is unseasonably warm.

Unfortunately warmth does not equal sun. There hasn’t been much sun at all lately, so the solar stocks are running low.

Talking to my neighbour, he said his attempts to get permission for a windmill got nowhere, which seems retarded of the council (no change there). Whilst coming from different philosophical directions, it’s good we can agree on the importance of sustainability.

Lack of sun means less computer use, which is a bit annoying, since the urge to write comes and goes and i can’t always simply flick a switch and set stuff down on paper. However, this also means i read more books.
