Oh, I Googled something like Boston electricity and it seemed like there were a lot of choices. I can't believe the snow you have had there. The middle of Feb. last year, we had an inch of snow and that was the first snow in 5 years. On the other hand, I can drive 25 mi. across town and then 20+ miles up our 9,400 ft mountain and usually go skiing. Not last year though because of the drought they missed opening for the first time in ~50 years.

I have an answer to your snow problems. Take down your PV panels, send them to me, I'll tell Tucson Electric Power that the additional kWhs are yours. They can notify the electric power company that you use there in Boston to expect a few billion electrons. WoW, do you need a few more companies for one town? When the panels are going gangbusters in June, I'll come visit my electrons. LOL!

ps.. I know what you mean about cell phones.. throw another LG phone on the plastic heap... this time I'm going Samsung... all my stuff is.. gone!

SC is probably up to their foreheads in issues with all that snow.. that Boston has had two or three of the worst winters ever in the past 25 years really begs to question.. WTH? I know you want that weight off your roof... any that you did clear was a step towards that.. it may allow some room for the rest to move downward as it thaws.. that moves weight toward the walls and away from the roof peak... and that is the way to go... geez.. but be careful dude... gotta get some youth out there to pick up the slack... I'm 52 and I don't think I'd be up on a ladder in the snow and ice and wind.. You are most crusty!! an old salt as they say!! God bless. Joe

Thanks I never thought I would hit 5 million but life is full of surprises!

power co got us for another $117... not so bad when one considers we are almost 10 degrees below average for the entire month... methane soon.. on another note... don't beat yourself up too bad on those avalanche devices jim... you had to give them a try.. and now it's easy to see the major cons verses the pros.. experience is education.. and we all know education can sometimes cost a bundle!! Hope on plan B now... we look to equal last years February output if we stay at current production... joe

shoveled about 7 fluffy... then the rain came.. built up about a half inch of ice.. then the avalanche's began .. 3 or 4 during the night.. in the morning.. we were about 70% clear.. now we are totally clean front and top... but the clouds persist.. I'm not too young to have aches from shoveling.. gt a snowboss shovel for the drive.. makes pushing the white way better...but ya gotta get it every 3 or 4 or you're shoveling... I will get back to you.. this a bit faster for me... keep the faith!! joe
