This is the view from my windshield on the way home tonight.
The one thing you won't see is any trace of the 10 inches of snow we got last week. Yesterday actually hit a balmy 65 degrees. That may have caused me to say some naughty words, but I can neither confirm nor deny that. Why can't we get 65 degree sunny days on the weekends in February??!!
Crack of thunder as I type this and I think I hear the telltale ping PING! of hail on the roof. I bet the chickens are less than amused about this late winter storm ushering in colder weather. They have been happy to get out of the coop and stretch their legs in the sun. I bet they're really going to be ticked if we get that snow they're talking about tomorrow. Come to think of it, I'll be ticked also. Damn that Punxatawney Phil!
I'm still gathering data with the new Efergy electricity monitor and hope to have some concrete information to share with you soon. The biggest milestone was writing the check for the solar panels today. The amount gave me heart palpitations. I have much to share with you in the next couple of days, including what our plans are and where we're going to put the panels!
But for now, it's late and I'm going to enjoy this thunderstorm by laying in bed and listening to the thunder. Am I the only one that finds it relaxing?
