With about a week of rain, drizzle and clouds, it's also time for the thump thump of the generator. 90 minutes a day usually does the trick, and looking at my logs, I'm also due for an oil change in the beast too.

    No genny here for a decade. Above the fog and below the snow. The only thumping is the old bear at the bottom of the ravine. He comes up and knocks over our compost bin once a month.
