**Met the other members of the SusSys crew at class on Tue.  We spent our time working on the HES energy audit.  After we measured the farmhouse dimensions with a 12 foot tape, we found some longer tapes and got all the window measurements.  Northface: 107 sqft. Eastface: 117 sqft. Southface: 39 sqft. Westface: 76 sqft.  Grand Total: 339 sqft. of windows at Miller Farm (including the 2 glass doors).  With raw numbers like that in hand we soon had Dan's HES audit running on the downstairs PC.  Dan became the basement gofer for the heating info.  Question of the day: When the heck was the Farmhouse built?

**I returned to the Farmhouse on Fri. to count up the Wattage of all the light fixtures.  (33)13 Watt CFLs, (1)15 Watt CFL, (3)26 Watt CFLs, (12)40 Watt FLs, (4)40 Watt I's (1)75 Watt CFL, (5)100 Watt I's.  (Grand totals: 30 active fixtures (some others in basement and greenhouse are currently empty) with 1,737 Watts of lighting.  Met Hillary, who was on a cleaning spree.  Suggested consolidating food into one fridge, cleaning it, and shutting it down for the summer.  Also, unplugged the block of ice that was once a freezer in the basement (why are there bird feathers sticking out of the ice?).  In the process I found some more info on the fridges and the hot water heater.

**Created my own HES audit using the info we gathered on Tue., the lighting  wattage, the fridge and hot water heater info, and my knowledge of the activity patterns of college students.  <b>Result of Energy Audit:</b> predicted use of 18,000 Kill'a'watt hours per year.  This matches up pretty well with the approx. 1,400 KWH per month that shows up on the electric bill.

**Class on Sat. was a breifing and planning session.  Also, Charlie gave us an intro to the workings of LP furnaces and solar hot water systems.  I found out the feathers in the freezer are attached to a pheasant which belongs to Dan.  Suggested removal of said dead creature.
