COLD MORNING IN BANCROFT
Woke up this morning to -25*C outside.
It's so cold the birds are sitting around our chimney cap to keep warm.
We heat with wood and it is stacked on our back porch close and easy to reach when needed. This is our reserve which we hope not to touch until next year when it will be good and dry.
Today our batteries will get fully charged thanks to at least 8 hours of full sun. Tomorrow will be a different story as we are expecting 20-25 cm of snow. It will make for great snowshoeing conditions through our forest.
Stay safe and warm everyone and thanks for stopping by.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we experience life off the grid and down the road.
