Well now, it's been a heck of a month since I made my last entry.


At the time I was optimistic about getting the old batts up and clearing the way for the installation of the new battery stack. The weather was middling good and I'd managed to cut up all of the old plywood and haul it away, so I'd thought that continuing along that vein I'd have the old batts up and things cleared out of the way for the new stack.

Yeah... no.

It's literally been 6 solid weeks of winter/rain/snow/cold each and every weekend since then. We'll even have decent weather mid week, and then around Wednesday the weatherman will say something like "we're watching an incoming front", and next thing you know the weekends have 12" of snow and temps in the mid-twenties. Tanglewood has had over two feet of snow since that last entry, much to my astonishment and disgust.

If a given weekend wasn't too cold to do work outside, it was too wet.

If it wasn't too wet, it was too snowy.

Usually it was both.

Grrrrrrrr..............

At least I got three of the 20 batteries moved up the hill. The fourth is marooned halfway up the hill as I ran out of time. I had hoped to get them all up the hill before Solar LeRoy arrived to do the new charge controller and conduit work, but at this rate who knows.

Always fun in the mountains!

I understand Steve! I'm three hours south of you and we are having the same issues with the weather. If we could have only gotten this during ski season! 

In the meantime, I'll keep working on details and planning until we can break ground.

Yep, that's the only thing we can do!

I'm gonna be so well planned when I can finally work outside I'm sure something will go catastrophically wrong just to spite me...
