Good idea, it's worth a try.
The output of some generators smooths out a bit when powering a significant resistive load. The blender would be an inductive load.
You might try the same approach, but using something that's a big heater. Toaster oven, space heater, hair dryer, even a toaster, for instance.
I will give that a try. Th
I understand, Fcarp! When Michael (CAT 5) passed almost directly overhead in 2018, it wiped out almost the entire electrical infrastructure of the county. Took just over a month to completely replace it all through the rather large 1000 sq mi county. In the meantime, nothing worked anywhere from gas stations to grocery stores.
Obviously, a CAT 5 hurricane is a significant event. Even with the best of planning, it's going to take a LONG time to recover....
Internet and TV just came back up this morning. Still no landline.
Still 100K people in CT in the dark. Lots of trees up here that are down and need to be cleared before power can be restored.
Hope they get it on before Laura jumps on in there!Them graphics showing where the cone may travel are very misleading. Marco entered the Gulf of Mexico and almost immediately began breaking up from the dry wind shear coming from the southwest. The eye of Marco is heading north-northwest towards Louisiana, but the rain component has broken off heading almost due north.
That rain component has been striking our area of the Florida panhandle for the past two days. But that dry wind shear is really impacting the rainfall as it travels north. Over the Gulf of Mexico, the rain storms are quite heavy, but as it crosses the shoreline it dries up to almost nothing. Yesterday, we got around 0.01 inches of rain and today just a little bit more of 0.12 inches.
That is a good thing as my house is tarped awaiting the installation of the metal roof.
