Bad time for solar power

It’s a good thing we have a backup generator to refill the batteries once in awhile. There were a few days last week that gave us plenty of sunshine, but the outlook for the coming week looks bleak.

Does anyone out there know how to make electric power out of fog? I’m listening.

I am not sure if this is useful, but check out this link about electric fog at this website.

If the link doesn't work google electric fog.

If you get really, really thick fog and you can get it to turn it into water then you get it to run over a water wheel attached to your generator.

Susan: The last time we built a water wheel, it stopped raining.

I just thought it was cool that I can comment on your blog while we're driving past Area 51 (the middle of nowhere). Cool iPhone.
