The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Valentine's Day outage

Power outage

This is just a quick note to let you know our power's out. So, family and friends, if I don't answer your email or we don't post on schedule, please don't assume we got eaten by bears. We're hunkered down in front of the fire, hoarding our 79 minutes of backup power for when we really  need them and feeling lucky that lack of electricity doesn't cause any dramatic problems for us any more. I hope you're all staying warm!

Stay warm :) sometimes it's nice to be without the juice for a bit to recalibrate what our real needs are. :)
