    Tried out the generator tonight.

    Monsoon knocked out power tonight so I set up the generator for it's first real test. I checked the loads with my clamp on and founds that 1 legs was pulling 8 amps while the other was pulling 6 so I guess with a 8 KW generator is good shape.. Figure 30 amps per leg. Maybe I can sell some power to my neighbors...

    Get any hail in your area Don? My parents said their yard was white with up to marble sized hail.

    Poured buckets a hundred miles to the north, too. Half inch hail briefly but the power stayed on. Really pounded on the roof last night. Scared the cat. Still lightly raining. Looks pretty bedraggled out there this morning.

    I wondered if our AZ members were ok...I don't work for the insurance company, but I sit amongst about 40 claims adjusters. Their phones have been non stop this morning with claims for wind and hail in AZ.

    Hope all is well with you everyone.
