Readying for Winter

Already got 15,000 gallons off the roof!

Got to cut this off the road during the last big storm!

People always ask about how the mud house would stand up in the rain. Here's the only bit that got wet during this last 3 day huge storm.  The tip of the SW buttress.  We keep saying we're going to put tiles on that slope. maybe next summer. 

First pie crust!

for a venison pot pie!

I don't think I ever posted about my carport water collection system.  The gutters are on, and the double flush system is in place.  

I have some additional filter material within the pipe itself, but I still need to work on how best to keep the water cleaner.  Still, full tank!

Starting anti-fire prep

Well, we never really stop.  But, took a picture of today's raking below the yurt.  Every year I work to get a bit wider swath cleared....
