Today's entry is a little of this and a little of that.

Last week we added a chest freezer to our electric solar power consumption. We've had some wet, cloudy weather since and our batteries got down to 79%. This morning they are back to 100% as we head into another four days of rain. It looks like the chest freezer is not a burden on our system and everything is working fine. I may add an electric water heater next summer to take further advantage of the excess power we produce during the summer months.

Cathy and Paul drove down from Algonquin Park yesterday for a visit. It was great to see them and give them a tour of the house. Mary and Cathy talked quilts. Paul and I talked about the state of our provincial park system which has seen a dramatic drop in staff the past few years.

We attended music in the park last night, the last one for the summer. Unfortunately neither one of us enjoyed the music so came home early. Sometimes we don't want the music to end, other times it can't end soon enough. Overall it was a great summer for music in the park.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels.
