The morning stillness was broken by the breeze from the east as it gathered strength, slowly at first, but gaining speed until "Jenny" our wind generator's blades became a blur. Orca's batteries were at 11.9 volts, and any lower the system would warn us of an under voltage. Ten minutes and the sun would be high enough to recharge them along with the wind generator output, so no need to worry.

... tortoise is my totem animal. I identify with those slow, small, dogged steps. An intent, ungraceful beast.
