The last i remember were of a road trip you took. Beautiful pics btw.
After he bagged that moose, he went and got a vanity plate
Squirrel isn't bad if it's cooked right. Best rodent I've ever ate. Do not try to dodge one when riding a bike though, could be very hazardous to your health.
When we replaced that ICC a few weeks ago we installed a lightening rod.
To be honest, I don't think it's going to make any difference at all. every lightning strike I've dealt with, the damage has come from the field side, not the primary power side. The controller/transformer actually protects the house wiring from the strike, that's why you'll see them launched across the room with smoke on the outside of the plug instead of a melted plug and all kinds of electrical damage in the house. If the strike were on the primary side, you'd either see blown power company transformers, serious breaker box damage or a burned down house.
did you mean "A ground rod?" Two different items.
BTW - yes, turns in a wire slows a surge thru friciton. On multi-conductor cables, that is where the surge will short one conductor to another.
I'm looking at a variac right now I can simulate a strike but I already know the outcome.... Fire
A big enough variac plus a shorted solenoid equals quality entertainment.
I got a staco hear that should do the trick....
please make sure you get your experiments on video for all of us to see...
