Storm Predicted, Generator Ready

by Terry 12/20/2008 6:58:00 AM

Last night I worked on mounting and wiring the generator transfer switch in the garage. Karen commented that I had to wait until a major wind and ice storm was predicted to hit before finishing this task. I was merely employing just-in-time services. Right, that is it. I am simply efficient.

This morning I will kill the house mains so I can connect the bundle of wire in my electrical panel. I could have done that last night, but I figured it would be smarter to roll open the garage door in the daylight rather than fumble in the dark with a screwdriver in one hand, a wire in the other and a flashlight held in my mouth to see by. It is beastly cold out, so working in the daylight makes the task a bit easier.

Of course, sunrise is around 7:52 AM, the temperature is a 14.5° F (-9.7° C) and the storm winds are predicted to start around 9:00 AM with gust hitting 90 mph (144 kph). In theory, this gives me an hour to complete all the work and test the generator on the new mains. See, just in time delivery.
