Slap on that sunscreen, it’s time to go test out the lake!

BRRRRRrrrrrrr! 😀

It should stay beautiful most of the week. There might be a couple days Tues/Wed with fog in the morning.

ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!

EDIT: I’m hoping that this could be my first ‘perfect solar day’. There is barely a cloud in the sky. The sky isn’t perfectly clear but it’s pretty close. It will be fun to watch the solar power graph:
here (fancy, but delayed)
or
here (less fancy, more accurate… type -120 and 0 in the max/min and click refresh)

  1. Looks like you have a re-occuring dip-out around 10am… perhaps a tree partially shading?

  2. Yup.  Our birch tree shades it a little at that time and the shadow from our clothesline pole moves across it at the same time as well.  

    I’m still in spousal negotiations to have the clothesline moved, the tree has to stay though 🙂

  3. Yeah, that’ll do it.  If you could get above the tree (or perhaps some trimming) I’m sure you could get a solid half kilowatt of juice a day.
