Even at this time of year the solar panels chuck out quite a lot of electrickery … for about 1/2 an hour a day … when it isn’t cloudy or raining … or snowing.


When these specific conditions happen to collide in celestial harmony we charge round the house turning on the washing machine, the dishwasher, the vacuum cleaner, the radio, the television, the fridge, the freezer, all computers and the electric fire in the shed.

For most of the winter, obviously, our clothes smell, the milk is off, there’s dust everywhere, the dishes are filthy and everything in the freezer stinks.

My advice is, if you want to visit, come over during the wonderful summers we enjoy year on year.
