The biggest inconvenience is our well not running. We had plenty of bottled water and some buckets of water for toilets. However, I am hoping that within the next year we can reestablish the gravity fed underground mountain stream. If we can get that hooked up in the house (the line is already run almost to the house), we can have water even when the power is out (at least on the downstairs level - there may not be enough pressure to carry it upstairs without a pump). This is a huge priority project for me, as we seem to lose power in big chunks of time off and on, and water is a necessity!
Readers, have you had much bad weather this winter?
