THIS WEEK’S STATISTICS
Engine ran on Monday 2,6 hours (156 minutes) – and that was it.
Generator this week 1,6 hours (96 minutes) up till now, Sunday 3:38PM. To drive our microwave and this morning around 1 hour to boost our batteries.
Weather: summer seems to stay, but not too hot. We are able to walk the dog most of the time meaning it is not that hot. Today it’s very rainy. Good for the farmers.
Hope to see you all again next week!
