Rain, Rain Go Away

by Greta
(Sacramento, CA)

Solar cooks are so conscious of the weather that when there is even one small cloud in the sky they will start doing a sun dance.


That is so true Greta...always looking at the sky to see what the weather is like.
Until I started solar cooking I never new just how cloudy it was where I live; in "Sunny St. George".

Why Not Add Tracking Device?
by: Anonymous

I am a bit surprised to find nobody yet to come up with a solar cooker and a sun tracking device so that it can be left aiming at the sun automatically. The telescope makers must have something for you.... ask them!

I watch the clouds, too.
by: Jim La Joie

Heavy overcast, like we get on the coast = no cooking. Hazy skies mean longer cooking times. Broken clouds... sometimes I am surprised.
If the clouds are less than 50% I am still confident in cornbread or rice.
Those of us who use photovoltaic electricity have learned that there is an "edge of cloud" effect wherein, as the cloud is just clearing the sun, the light becomes very intense. So on broken cloud days, I start earlier.
