Here in central Ga. the weather is starting to turn for the worse. Getting probably 30 mph winds, steady rain and it may worsten as Frances heads north.

Strong wind gusts up this way, looked nasty all day. Figure something will probably happen overnight.

I'm planning to leave for work earlier tomorrow a.m. Every asshat and his mother are going to be driving 20 mph across all three counties.

Went shooting today in 30 mph gusts in Pickens Co. Kinda fun but my groups were less than impressive.

Our power went out last night here in Douglasville. We have our generators here at work mirroring GA power in case of a failure.

Mirroring? Is that running in sync with the breaker closed?

Sorta, we have an A and B "chain" for power, both with GA power as the primary and an A and B chain generator. The A chain also has a UPS system inline to keep our equipment from taking a hit in the event of a power failure. If we do have power failure(all of our equipment is kept on the A chain unless it fails), the UPS picks up the slack until the generator can start itself and takeover as primary. We have had some problems with our A chain UPS so we went ahead and started the generators so there wouldn't be that lag when the generators start up if there is a GA power failure.

all I know is when you have enough wind to shake a 150 ton airplane like a pissed off dad that has a hold of his son, it can get pretty harry inside of it.

It hasn't been too bad here in Alpharetta. You can see a lot of leaves and downed trees everywhere. But there hasn't been too much rain so I'm thankful that the power hasn't gone out.

Did anyone lose their power last night or this morning?

My parents and my brother still do not have power.
