Also I was Disaster Planning and Drilling at 2 Corps here. 22 yrs.
The whole mindset in this small city is. Why do that. It will never happen here. Did finally with help of Fed Auditors get a 15KW Generator at the Community Bank. Wanted a 30KW. I was right, 15KW Barely could maintain Server Room, Teller Line PC’s and a few lights. No AC But for portable in Server room. We Dreaded any power loss Especially Extended ones which we had.
What happened in TX proved what I’ve always said about Generac installing Nat Gas Generators. If the Grid goes Down ( Never happen), there will be No Nat gas flowing underground. No power, no pumps, no flow.
I’m getting my own LP Tank out back to run a 16KW. Sized for 5-7 Days run time before refueling. Longer if not too big of tank.
We were out for Hurricane Ike up here 3-4 days. For 7+ Days for the 2012 Derecho.
Change is hard. Same thing was said Pre Katrina. Governments though they didn’t need Hams anymore. Katrina changed that (for awhile).
This Grid event will bring (some) changes. All about Control, top down. That Limits what Should be done.
