We've had our fair share of rain here. I don't mind it at all, other than the fact that my laundry set up is not under cover and it makes drying the clothes a longer. I just add extra vinegar in the rinse water and it seems to help keep the mustiness at bay. So, with all the rain Stella and I usually search the sky for "blue holes"
Below is Reeve doing his laundry this morning. Good thing he got it done (2 loads) when he did because now it is raining.

We're very fortunate in the fact that the property we have has two cabins. When we moved here in June the folks we bought the property from were renting the back cabin. They moved out in August, and because we like to take things slow.....it took us until December (4 months) to move to the back cabin. The back cabin has the power, and actual bedrooms, running water, and our new refrigerator, so we're all digging our new digs.
The above picture is of our inverter and battery monitoring screen. It's pretty cool to look at it and see what the "State of Charge" is on the batteries. I've never seen it go below 96%. We have six 190 watt solar panels and we're running one kitchen light (at night), the refrigerator (during the day only...we shut it off at night for a defrost cycle), and our laptop, mi-fi, cell phone charger, and Bose CD/Radio...sooooo nice to have music (our old school cd's) in the house again.The above is a random picture...Stella sewing a dress for her doll Mary. Mary is the doll I made for Stella's 1st birthday. Stella is on the deck at the front cabin. See the school bus in the background? That's our neighbor's school bus.
