Yesterday the girls and I spent the entire day running around the city doing errands. We didn't get back until after dark, around 7:30 pm. As we drove past our friend Enola Gay's "shouse" (shop/house), we noticed their off-grid place looked darker than usual. Bu we were tired and hungry and anxious to get home, so we didn't think much about it.
Until this morning when I logged onto her blog and realized that no, we weren't imagining things. They were in the dark.
Anyone who thinks off-grid living is easy, cheap, convenient, and (most importantly) trouble-free is living in a fantasy world.
