When the sun came out yesterday we wanted to dance; the place looked that good. The sky was blue, the air crisp in your lungs and every time you took a step the snow crunched. It was magical!

Even the chickens were dancing in their solarium. On a cold day it gets surprisingly warm in their run if the sun is shining.

It got windy in the afternoon and the temperature continued to drop, down to -31*C (-23.8*F) last night the coldest night this winter.

Don't think we will see blue sky today as it is snowing as I type. (4 a.m.) So many cloudy days means we run the generator more often. That's the reality of life off grid here in the north.

Up-date 8:30 am

I was wrong. The sun did appear and will charge our batteries today. Yea! No generator.

Safe travels and enjoy the day.
