are two, thousand gallon propane tanks, although I've never used the extra
one. In the winter when sunlight is shortest, throughout the day I run the generator about
an hour and a half which runs a 36" TV, a 20" IMac,
fax, printer, refrigerator, water pump, lights, and every few days, usually when the sun is shining, I'll run the dishwasher
or a load of clothes. The dryer heats with propane. I heat with the coal stove primarily, but the propane
furnace comes in handy too. The
location would support a wind generator but you would need a good sized tower as the house sits just below a ridge line.

best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside,
somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God.
Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God
wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long
as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will
always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be.
And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles. Anne

Girl (1947; tr. 1952), entry for 23 Feb. 1944.
