Photos from Slurpee Day

I took a bunch of photos today as I walked down to the mailbox after a heavy downpour:

This one was from Bethel Road on my way home from an egg run to Walmart:

I recently installed an automatic gate opener on the lower gate. It runs off a 12v marine battery which is recharged by a 5w solar panel. It used to be quite a chore to drive off the property, especially if one were going solo:

1. Open upper gate
2. Drive forward
3. Close upper gate
4. Drive down
5. Open lower gate
6. Drive forward
7. Close lower gate
8. Drive to Walmart (usually)

Now that we're happy with the results, we ordered another set of gear for the upper gate. Push-button living on the farm is just ahead.
