It's still raining out!

Ok, well RIGHT now, it's just really cold and cloudy. We hadn't had any rain in a month, and then we get rain rain rain, wet, and cold.

Not exactly the best thing for a solar dryer.
Even though the fans only pull a tiny amperage, the battery is slowly wearing down, as the PV panel has made essentially NO electricity for the last three days. It wasn't even fully charged when I started!

I hope for sun, rather than having to break down and plug in a battery charger. Even then, my house is on a renewable energy program, where all my electricity comes over the grid from wind and other renewable sources.
