  1. wow you just don’t know how much your at risk till it happens / you need an automated system that protects your cells till you need them / not just waiting for this to happen /K-I-S-S you can make this so you don’t have to go through this again

  2. That’s a reality check: the ride down the peak oil slope is gonna be a tough and bumpy one…The Long Emergency indeed =/
    Imagine relying only on that crop / solar panel for survival, no need for a diet.
    I think you should include in your prep some butchering classes & also a hunting rifle, shotgun and ammo. Say you kill some wild game and preserve the meat that would be nice to help with the destroyed crops…maybe raise some chickens and rabbits too. No one got hurt, keep your chin up.

  3. Mother Nature can be a real bitch sometimes.
    I really hope you can salvage some of those solar cells.

  4. Bummer man hate to see that happen to anyone. Sorry to say that does come with being your own utility All up to you to make sure you can recover from such events readily. One reason why I’m in no hurry to go off grid just yet

  5. Get that homeowners insurance off of that. I have lots of big trees on my lot, trying to make my system portable. My solar is somewhat easy to take down, put into storage. I my weather gets crappy like that. Nice video though, maybe revenue sharing material. sorry for your loss, Have a nice day.
