12/22/17 - Sawbill's remote location presents some interesting challenges when it comes to energy. This picture lends some clues as to how we capture the energy needed to heat the buildings and keep the lights on. -Jessica

12/12/17 - As we approach the darkest days of the year its nice to step back and notice the long shadows and distinct thumping sound of ice forming on the lake. Today the sun will be above the horizon for only 8 of 24 hours. These shorter days give us a very good excuse to hunker down with a hot beverage, good book, and maybe some knitting. Happy winter everyone! - Jessica

On this 12th day of the 12th month I measured 12 inches of ice on the south end of Sawbill lake just before noon. Twilight zone stuff right there.
