Yeah, we got a … bit of snow. This isn’t that unusual for Vermont, but still. We’re really ready for warmer weather.

Springtime In Vermont

By | March 22, 2019

Springtime in Vermont, ladies and gentlemen. (We’re looking at a possible six to twelve inches today, with likely high winds and power outages. Fortunately, the whole house is backed up by a pair of Tesla Powerwall 2 batteries.)

Snowpocalypse 2019 (January 20th edition)

By | January 20, 2019

So there was a big snowstorm overnight, with 18″ or more of snow falling here in Richmond, VT. Okay, it wasn’t really a “snowpocalypse” in the sense of power going out and roads being impassable … mainly because it just never got windy. A quick check of the Green Mountain Power outage map just now showed everything A-ok.… Read More »

Nostra maxima culpa

By | July 5, 2018

And, er, apparently the folks at SunCommon (our solar installer) took us seriously when I said “now, make sure we get lots of… Read More »

Winter Solstice Ice Storm

By | December 22, 2013

So, we had an ice storm last night … most of the freezing rain and icing came in the hours after midnight, but even the evening hours were pretty slick. We did the usual stuff Vermonters do when an ice storm is coming — we filled the bathtubs with water so we’d be able to flush toilets if… Read More »
