You mean like finding your spot in the middle of a multi-national 34-ship formation in the middle of the night, and not bumping into anyone while doing it?

Tired this morning! Had a job that had to be done on the weekend because it's a business and they didn't want to be without power during normal business hours. Had to upgrade the service from 100A to 200A. New meter and riser (riser was bent when tree fell on line to building, so we had to fix the roof too), new main panel, new sub-panel on other side of building, and new wire between new equipment. Some jack leg had installed the sub-panel years ago (old screw in glass fuses) and fed it off of a 100A breaker coming out of the original 100A panel. But wait, there's more! They used #10 wire to feed it!!! Which is only rated for 30A.... Rolling Eyes Also had to add a couple receptacle circuits around and fix some other stuff.

Anyway, I took the whole crew over there Saturday so we could make it a one day proposition... except it wasn't. I ended up having to go back yesterday with my brother to finish it up. I went to church to lead praise and worship, but then left after I was done to go work. Missed covered dish lunch at the church and even Rangers last night, but it's done now. Haven't had to work on a Sunday in a while. I don't like to, but sometimes you've got to get the the ox out of the ditch.

When we built our house, we put in 200 Amp Service - which is unheard of in Northern Mississippi.  The idea was for 100A for the home itself, and a 100A Feed for the air conditioner units and patio area, outside.  No residential building in Northern Mississippi has that kind-of wiring.

So, it has handled any combination of equipment and appliances that we have needed to run.

Then our church had the Young Men & Women Choir from Lee Christian College sing at our church.  So there were about 30 or 35 young people that needed to be fed and housed for Saturday afternoon/evening, and then brought to church on Sunday for the Praise/Worship Service.

As our house was set up with two guest bedrooms, sharing their own private bathroom, we volunteered, and got 4 college girls for overnight guests.  After pizza, popcorn, and Pepsi in the dining room, they retired to their side of the house, and did whatever college girls do for entertainment for the evening.

Next morning, we were all getting ready for church.  At/about 8:00 AM, POW, we tripped a circuit breaker.

It seems that the house was not wired to handle 4 blow dryers and curling irons from the same bathroom at the same time.

Nope. Anything with a heat element will suck up the wattage! That's why I like gas heat so much more than a heat pump with heat strips.

I can speak my mind in front of my wife, any time that I want to.
