This blog is about our travels in our solar powered "Airstream" and living off grid, in our passive solar home, near Bancroft, Ontario, Canada.

We have been digging out from the latest storm but it hasn't been as bad here as originally forecast. Some hydro customers in southern Ontario are without power but we are fine and this area hasn't had any power outages that we know of.

I try to keep the Airstream and solar panels clear of snow.

Mary cleans off her car.

And when we venture out we put on our clickers. 

So far we've avoided any damage from the freezing rain and the snowfall has been far less than originally predicted. Our cottage road was plowed Saturday morning which made the trip to town very easy. Today I will get the bobcat out and clear the driveway once the snow and freezing rain have passed.

We are scheduled to go Christmas caroling with the church tonight but that will depend on the weather.

Last night Dave, Vi, Peter, Eva and the girls dropped by. It was great to see them and have some time together. The girls enjoyed reading and playing while the adults visited.

Travel safely everyone. It might be a little slippery today.

Update 11 am

Just came in from clearing the driveway. Paul and Steve came over to help on their ATVs, much appreciated. Here are a few pics.

Our road; unless you have a high clearance 4x4 you won't be going anywhere soon.

Neighbours gate out my window.

We are staying put today.
