When I looked out on the screened-in porch this morning, I thought the thermometer had broken. It hadn’t.
This is where the wet weather creek runs into the pond. I took it last week, before the big snow. It was around 25 degrees.
This is what a passive solar heater looks like. Yep, it’s the whole house. Yesterday afternoon when I took this, it was 20 degrees outside and 75 degrees inside. The furnace, set on a wimpy 70, had not come on for hours. It was bright, warm and comfy inside. The passive solar only works on sunny days, but on cloudy days, it’s still very bright inside because of all the windows.
