**Met with the crew on Tuesday to finish up the hot water audit.  Colin had a nifty little kilowatt-hour calculator written up using the data from the hot water heater user guide site, but looking at the results (102% efficiency) it was clear that something wasn't right with the numbers.  We first corrected the fahrenheit to celsius calculation and then, still noting problems, scrapped some of the calculations from the website and found an online source for converting joules into kilowatt-hours.  After that Colin's program worked great.  I suggested he rewrite it to take as input the standard recharge rate of hot water heaters so that it might be more useful to other interested parties.

**Met with Dan and Kate Monday night to put togeter our hot water use information.  We managed to make some headway, but didn't get much written up. We used a thermometer from the greenhouse to find the temperatures at which Dan, Kate and I like to shower and then took the average.  We also determined the gal./min. shower usage and approximated the hot water to cold water ratio.
