Dry season

Just a quick update... Dry season has arrived properly... The temperature is high, the sky is clear blue, the Cortez trees are flowering (this particular specimen is from the road through Upper Barton Creek, 10 minutes or so from home), and the rivers and waterfalls seem strangely inviting - in a way that building things doesn't right now...

And on a (vaguely) related note, what better time to expand the solar system than when there's wall-to-wall sunshine there for the taking? We picked up another 500W of panels in Spanish Lookout today.

The current system is a little undersized relative to the battery bank; this should help things along rather nicely.
