We are several days into a triple digit heat wave in the Mid Atlantic region. To bad we can't store it for this winter.
Wednesday the temperature set a record at 102 (BWI airport) and 105 in Baltimore. There were some brownouts and a 5% voltage reduction. Today (Thursday) the power went off about 9:30 AM. The local electric company's problem reporting telephone number says not to report outages. This usually means a system failure rather than an errant car hitting a pole. I'm running on the generator now. Hopefully the power will come back after the sun sets. The generator is noisy to run. I'll have to run a line to the neighbors so they can get well water. We haven't had measurable rain in over three weeks.
