Fwiw, the vortex will be plunging us below zero here in a day or two

We carry gym bags , put the woolies on to stay out

Things do tend to go slower , but on a good note most leave us alone to do our work

Life changing, I spent all day kneeling yesterday. Walk without pain. That took place in June.

Seems they come with different features everytime we're asked to show up, i always gotta ask because it's really not my forte'

Why duct seal around the fitting at the top of the meter? And they are low to the ground. Don't you get snow build up? Also, if the wire connections are touchable from the ground and over 50 volts, they must be guarded.

-6 to start with, then a balmy 5 above at noon. Glad to get that part done. I will run conduit and mount inverters, BOS next week when it's 30 degrees warmer.

The location of the first t fitting causing an offset to be bent has me ever so curious.

I didn't like it either but I had no choice. That's where the conduit from the roof comes down and I had to put the first inverter there because the windows cramped the space between them to only allow three there.
