Wintertime Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

More snow (6-8″) is forecasted for tomorrow, so I needed to make sure that the driveway was cleared from the last storm. It took two runs with the snow blower. The first early in the morning when the snow was still hard, and a second run in the afternoon after the snow had softened. Both are combined in a time-lapse video taken with a Garmin VIRB-360 camera.

Daily Electric Energy Used (73.2 kWh) from Sense. Daily Solar Electric Energy Produced (21.7 kWh) from Sense and SolSystems. Sunny, however the solar panels still partially covered with snow. Geothermal HVAC system on. A deficit of 51.5 kWh.
