You can see that the ambient outside temperature is -19.2. It's also chilly inside, the fire went out and as per our frozen water line, the crawlspace door is open...
|Actually, as I am typing this, the temperature has dropped to -20.0. It's always coldest just as the sun is rising.|
|They actually dropped to -14 at the same time as the ambient dropped an extra degree.|
So there are two interpretations I suppose. We managed to keep the "spread" between the two temperatures to about 6 degrees from last night's eight. That's pretty good I think!
Oh wait, it only got about 4 degrees colder ambient, but the batteries dropped 5 or 6 degrees... They got colder faster than the world outside!
Now how do I feel about things? Well, I guess rationally, knowing that they are still likely warmer than if I had done nothing at all is gratifying. I just have to see if it's enough to allow them to:
- Take and give off more charge.
- Not go so high as to cut off all power for the cabin.
