  1. If you are going to move to an area and will be on the grid its not a bad idea to call up the people who are operating the power station IN the dam to find out if they are able to “ISLAND” the generators. Theirs a good reason to know that, because if the power grids go down in a CME X Flair event or some other event that could take down the grids then you would want to be fed power from a plant that can do that.

    “ISLAND the power plant” is the term Its good to call and ask if they can do that.

  2. Missouri

    whats been stolen or purchased in large quantities by M.E. men in Missouri?

    Burner phones, Propane tanks
    and “explosives found in the woods”

    now “suspects” looking at a dam..

    again look up “Hell Cannon” and see what they can do with those Propane tanks .. and what it could do to a dam like this

    these types need to be watched so closely that when they wipe their a$$es they are cleaning your retina at the same time
