Snow slip

The temperatures rose a bit yesterday, enough to melt some of the snow. On the roof of the barn the snow gradually slipped forwards as the layer closest to the roof melted. This morning the temperatures are back to 'parky': -12°C or 10°F and the snow slip is frozen in its half-on-half-off state.

The solar panels work more effectively at low temperatures than they do when it's very hot, so at least they're clear of snow now and by the look of the sky it will be a good generating day!

Despite the cold, the chickens ventured out this morning for the first time since Christmas, so it was worth clearing some of the snow from their run on Saturday.
