FYI to anyone looking at standby generators. First thing is that, at this altitude those internal combustion engines will loose about 18% of their rated power. Power loss is negligible up to about 600' AMSL then you loose about 3% per 1000' of elevation. So a 5kW unit can be expected to deliver about 4100 watts. Also, the formula for calculating single phase A/C power is current (amps) x voltage x power factor (PF) = watts. Another BIG thing is to NEVER use a cord with two male plugs to connect to your system. The law, and common sense, requires the use of a transfer switch so that their is no chance of accidentally back-feeding generator power into the utility grid.

Thank you Benny. Maybe it was a quick dinner break. That is a lot of area to cover.

I went by a little bit ago, about 10 Sheriff's and S&R vehicles staged at the top of 18. Probably searching along pct from the dump to gods eye, around cactus flats area etc.

Sep 25 : 08:34pm
Thank you for the update SCM. There was absolutely nothing going on out there. Hopefully that is good news.

KrazyKristin, I wondered why a bunch of dog stuff showed up for my cat today

Sep 25 : 08:10pm
Hi Gorn. I haven't heard anything. I know they were out there in numbers a bit earlier... They are staging on highway 18 above Delta (or what is left of Delta - pretty much no longer a road).

Sep 25 : 08:06pm
Any news on the off-duty firefighter? Between BBC and Cactus Flats there were no searches being conducted at 7pm.

Sep 25 : 07:45pm
If anyone finds my order my dogs will love you for life! Evidently it's out there somewhere . . .

Just came up Hwy 38 to Forest Falls also - 630pm - no signs or cops anywhere.

I came up about two hours ago. There was no roadblock at Bryant and 38. Hubby drove up before me and said it was at the hairpin turn by Forest Falls. There was an unmarked but official looking SUV at the side of the road. The men standing there chatting made no effort to make eye contact or get me to stop. I had my drivers license in my hand and was ready to show it.

Sep 25 : 06:39pm
Gunshots in Crestline. I have the helicopter circling my house. Anyone have any info? Thank you.
