Good Afternoon, HH, I have an auto transfer switch, here is a pic of one of the solar panels (Fed Ex delivered rest today) set it out in a cloudy day to test and it passed. Another just to show how much snow we still have well over two ft on the flat.

Terry, great chance for you to fool with panel angles to see how much of a difference it makes.

Cloudy or not, you should be able to adjust the panel & see as much as 40% increase in the single panel's output.

Even more interesting would be starting with the panels flat on the ground like most mount them on a MR/TT roof.
The racks I made for mine have built in 15 degree brackets since that is the minimum mine require on my storm shelter. You will want yours to sit flat & lock in place though.

Good Morning, Just finished my morning PT, raining here today, better than snow. HH, I agree I will probley lay one out and just mess with it to see what it does, doesn't really mean anything as far as mounting on the TH, just be interesting to see what happens, I can't crawl up a ladder yet anyway. Have great day all.

Terry - great that you can get out into the fresh air for a bit of exercise. Fun to start playing with the parts in preparation for the big finish once you are able to get around much better.

Like the tractor with the snow blower. I did not buy a snow blower as I did not intend to be here to use it but we may have decided to come home for Christmas. Still not enough to add a snowblower though.

Terry good to see you're doing well enough to venture out a bit.

Hope it doesn't rain too hard melting the snow so fast you have flooding issues.

Hi Gordon, I normally would not have a snow blower ether except a good friend was selling his S&B and this was one of the items, At the time I needed a lawn mower and this came with everything for a good price, I mainly use it for the MIL driveway its asphalt and has no room to plow, she lives about a quarter mile up the road so I just run it up when needed. I'm starting to get antsy, I'm glad the weather is not real good yet or it would be worse, I do PT twice a day and it takes me about an hr. to run thru all the exercises. The knee is still stiff and will be for awhile, pain level is down, now if I could sleep at night all would be good............well sort of. catch all later.

Hi Jay, I don't think we will have too much of an issue with flooding its going to be cold here again for a few days, and nights have been cold, good thing really we had some very bad flooding a few yrs ago, several towns almost got wiped out. Here at home if the flood water reaches us someone has already built an ark, we are way up high. The cold nights and warm days are very good for the sugar maples, and maple syrup, we don't tap but alot others do, and I sure do like maple syrup on my pancakes.

Still the blower looks like a handy thing to have around. I am sure the MIL thinks you are wonderful. I dont have anywhere near the amount of plowing to do so the bucket works OK for my application. Takes about 2 hours to do everything if the snow is not too deep.

We go to the hip and knee clinic for "hip school" on Thursday. I will pay more attention to the knee part of it this time.

Good that the pain levels are going down. I expect you mix periods of planned exercies with periods of rest to reduce the swelling. The rest along with coffee would make it hard to get a full nights sleep.

I think you will be about ready physically by the time the yard is dry enough to work comfortably. I hate working in the mud as it seems to get everywhere.

Have a great day.
