Days Of Rain At The Off Grid Passive Solar House

It monsooned at the off grid passive solar prefab house. I think it rained allll week long.

Monsoon outside... ...happy to be in the passive solar prefab!

Once or twice a year we get endless cloud cover like this, and, off grid, are grateful for our battery bank of stored energy AND the backup generator.
The sideways rain was so fierce
it hit the windows all the way under the overhang!

ANOTHER tornado watch left us alert and sleepless- once the tornado watch ended after midnight, our guard was let down, we finally drifted off to sleep, only to be awakened at 3 a.m. by the ROAR of a sideways storm...

This is how I felt the next day:

I today, after yesterday's monsoon and tornado watch and 3a.m. roaring, sideways storm...

At least at Higher Ground we don't have to worry about flooding. I would never consider purchasing real estate without considering elevation, and musing on it long term, as in, "What will this XYZ elevation be in 50, 100 years?" because otherwise, is it an investment?
But at least our cistern was full.

And inside the off grid prefab house, we were happy and dry.
We spent the week catching up on reading and organizing...
Pip 2 ground me some coffee...
With the children inside, the dogs had nothing to do but nap.

We (finally) have some long term investments paying off at the off grid prefab house- we are getting a return on investment on our fruit trees planted a few years ago! Cherries! Peaches! I can't wait to make tarts!
So we have been busy during breaks in the rain collecting fruit.

The sun FINALLY peeped out, everyone tumbled outdoors, but it was still too soggy to ride or mow or get anything big done. But Pip 1 did paint fence posts, and Pip 2 groomed the equines.

Spa time!
Once it dries off a little, we'll be back to mowing fields and gardening!
And another pretty, fun week at the off grid prefab house begins. : )
