When Wayne and I tell people we live off the grid in a float cabin 12 kilometres (8 miles) up Powell Lake, they ask, "What do you do way up there?" We divide entertainment into two categories: cabin living and just for fun.
Cabin living is its own entertainment. Wayne and I grew up in the city, so the big change is lots of fun for us.
Cabin maintenance. Stay ahead of things and problems diminish. This summer we'll re-stain the deck and paint indoors.
Plenty of time is left for entertainment that's just for fun.
Weather Watching. We're more aware of weather up the lake. Plus, Wayne has his "weather toys" to keep up with trends.
