More chances of afternoon isolated thunderstorms coming up so I ran to Alpine for parts'n'stuff. Hit the local health food store to buy some Kombucha (my new favorite drink) and alfalfa seed for sprouting to add to my new non-Spam meals. http://www.bluewaternf.com/ Working toward a vegatarian diet since it is much easier to grow veggis than it is to raise meat...plus, I don't think I can resolve the conflict of having relied my whole life on 6 degrees of separation between the living animal and my meal meat.
Stopped off to visit my buddy Bennett Jones http://www.alpinesolarsales.com/ and found his newly installed solar array... 2820 watts. His system is grid connected with no storage capacity set up yet. Nice thing was - when I showed up he was on his way out to check the meter and discovered it was time to turn on the AC in his house because he was feeding more into the grid than he had used so far today. 92,109,73,0,W
