Don't know what the issue was but have the whole house surge suppression from Georgia Power in front of the meter and whole house on panel plus UPS's on every device of value. Yesterday at work am unsure the reason, if from construction or substation, went out in field and when returned three computers were off. Their UPS's were totally smoked, would not reset, not restart and internal fuse replacement didn't bring them back. The Mosfets must be totally smoked. The cool thing is none of the dozen UPS's in the Faraday protected radio room or personal small office which are tied to the cage ground were damaged. With three phase power the extra hot leg and being only three phase client on the street leaves me open as can't protect two hot legs according to Georgia Power or a couple E.E.'s without spending over ten thousand dollars out of pocket. Even in the non Faraday rooms still majority of UPS's survived but losing three in one shot was huge on a blue sky day considering my massive ground.

And we begin again. What I don't really understand is how hard is it to think about what will happen if it is used. I do know there are some democrats that are on board but the rest are really nuts.

Headed to the wonderland this week. Sen Cruz pulled from the senate armed services committee. ( not sure what the deal is yet but old Mitch sent Texas down the river.) That leaves Texas with no one on the senate in defense matters (armed services or approps). What what happens on the house side to Herd.

Texas moving to keep it's economy moving. Just got out of the meeting preping for DC later this week. Amazing what the dems are planning to make sure Tx is flipped. That is why we're looking at committee assignments, relative to defense and EMP issues.

Most detailed recent report from the DOD. Note the nuclear reactor issue. DOE is standing by their line that EMP is not an issue.
