    Ooogh! Sounds like a mess down there...

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    Different name fer a hurricane/typhoon/tropical storm..............they all suck if you get hit by them.

    Stay safe.

    Stay safe, Alec. Hope the damage is much less than you are thinking. Mother Nature is getting frisky of late. Hope things are good there, and stay safe!

    Managed to survive. Widespread damage across the city but havent heard of any fatalities. Strongest gust was recorded about 9 miles away at 213 km/h ( 132mph).

    Got a couple of hours of work cleaning up before I can get my jeep out and get up to mums. Their driveway is completely blocked by fallen trees so it looks like I will be spending time on the chainsaw today. Its going to hurt......I think I have a torn rotator cuff as I have very limited movement in my left shoulder. Injured it about 2 weeks ago and strained it further yesterday.

    Thanks for your concern guys.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Well, a little more progress. Pay no mind to the drill bit/temporary pin. The extractor works good.

    Wow.......that is Cat 4 hurricane strength winds. Not good. Hope you can get to your moms OK and the roads are clear.

    Meh. Installed a deadbolt on the door between the house and garage. Nice metal clad door, but no wood reinforcement where I cut for the deadbolt. I even cut it at the specified distance from the knob. Was hoping somebody made a "do-dah" for this problem, but apparently nobody does and nobody's talking about this online anywhere I can see. So - I'll cut some small pieces of wood and fix it as best I can...

    Good call.  The last thing you want to do is open up the refrigeration system in weather like we had today.  Moisture in the system will kill the compressor.

    Found out its possible to get bitched at for not doing something that you were not asked to do. Guess I should have known that.

    It’s impossible to do proper vetting on women in the early stages. I think the precious metal in wedding rings is toxic to their brains or something.

    Went to the store for groceries...check out lady asked me if I wanted my milk in a bag.....told her it would probably be better to leave it in the jug....
    I'll have to remember that - but they don't even ask around here. I never want milk, or anything else with a handle already on it, in a bag. All that does is makes it harder to carry...

    Winches on Jeeps come in handy. Wife decides to move some bushes that had been growing in one spot for years. She had dug a circle around two of them before I got around there. When I walked up she said I give up they won't budge. I said (hold my beer and watch this) came back around the house in my Jeep. What's that for she asked. Got out looped the synthetic rope around the base where she had dug. The whole time listening to,,,,that ain't never going to work. Hit the button on the remote and the dang thing was pulling my Jeep towards it :D Told her to go hold my brake. A few seconds later the whole thing come up roots and all. Then I get to hear, well I didn't think that would work. Never underestimate an old man in a Jeep. B)

    Well the HVAC saga continues...

    Came home today to no AC again. Went out and checked.... YEP, one of the new 40 amp breakers is tripped. (replaced a 30 ampers due to availability)

    Reset it and switched it back on.... OMG! level of sparking occurred inside the panel and it immediately tripped again. The other 40amp leg was still on, so I immediately flipped it off too.
    Called them again and specified that they send an electrician this time.

    Little while later, 2 of them arrived, they opened up the panel, flipped the breaker back on, got sparks at the ground bar.

    So they unhooked the wires from both the breaker and the outdoor unit and went to testing.
    Found variable continuity between the ground and one of the hot leads. LUCKILY I had purchased the original 10ga wire  used to power the original system and I'd purchased 4 conductor. They checked and they had 2 good conductors and 2 grounds.
    So they made the unused red lead hot and SO FAR I have a working heat pump <crosses fingers>

    Funny thing is, while talking to one of the techs, turns out he's the son of a buddy from high school

    Yes, but I've screwed up doing that twice in my life. Once was a broke driveshaft the other was a rear end. This way there is no moving parts but the winch.

    They didn't leave the 40 amp breaker on the 10 gauge wire did they?

    Probably won't be a problem but 10 gauge wire isn't rated for 40 amps.

    Well, won't be a problem, JUST tripped the breaker AGAIN, so when they come out, I am going to ensure they replace the wiring with the 8ga required by NEC.

    Why, 1) because NEC says so. 2) because the tech who came out Sunday assured me the current wiring was enough to handle 40 amp service, so I hadn't bothered to check.
    3) That same tech has already pissed me off once, and since what he initially did is out of code, I imagine the owner that I plan on talking to tomorrow will call him to the carpet for costing him the money for rewiring

    Overkill my friend, overkill! Gotta make sure the truck is at least 10 x more than you need!

    But yea, I woulda use a winch in your position too! Mo' easy.

    8 gauge for 40 amps, 10 for 30. 
    However did I gather you have two single pole  breakers?
