    the only horizontal lightning i seen was up in the sky. i got touched by 220, it dont fill good, but, when its winter, and a humidifier aint run here, i have had spark arks a 1/2 inch long, or so. blue in color, i hate that worse that 110/220,. i cant imagine what it fills like to be struck by cloud static. and dont want to know.

    its kinda simple. drive a rod into the ground, attach it to the ground, in the electrical box. something like that. course i'm talking about the main box into the house, not the breaker box. were the place, ya lived have metal underneath, it dont hurt at all to ground the metal. actually, it dont hurt to make sure the breaker box is grounded, with a metal rod in the dirt. the more grounds the better. i cant help ya on grounding a tree. let the lighting strike elsewhere. i have thought about this., you dont want to know. LOL

    the home here was bought by my mother,, she crossed over. its a modular home, 72'x30' with a basement., but it wasnt properly grounded. modular homes are kinda like side by side trailers one side was not connected to the other when the house was built. it was not grounded. it could have been done easy. i got pictures somewhere, where the installers could have done this. if your house is getting struck by lighting, it probably doesnt have the ground right.

    actually. that makes more sense. light is faster then sound. you count the light, till ya hear the sound, that tells ya how far the storm is away. kinda like when the bullet hits, it dont matter where the sound came from, because its too late., now i have to look up the speed of bullets, in relationship to sound.;~}

    i was told it take 5 Mississippi's to make up a mile. i didnt count time like that on a race horse. i alternated between 1Mississippi , Anna a 2, 3Mississippi, Anna a 4,. so on you can do a mile or so riding, counting like that. least i could. counting thunder, i heard, if you can hear it, you are in danger of getting struck., the sound could be 15 mile's away, the electricity rubbed off from clouds[static], still can hit ya. whadda i know.

    got an ex sister-in law, i could tell wasnt right from the start. pain pill's put a damper on her, she got into meth. she aint the person, she wasn't anyway., the pain pills and the meth didn't help. shes getting old now. doubt she can snooker another guy into marriage. she had 5 or 6.

    it was hard to concentrate on the weather.
  13. as far as tension on the belt, i think it would only be slightly more, if that, on the teeth side of the belt. i havent seen how it looks in the service manual. looks like ya got a smaller belt. [bigger diameter of middle bearings it might take off some of the slack], sounds like a good ideal, but it might lead to kicking off the belt.? wadda i know.
  14. i got access to the splitter my bro in law bought, not this one. my bro-in-laws friend lived in Frankfort, 60 miles away. he crossed over. i'd have to hire someone to take down the tree. road is close, bout 10 or 15 Ft., the phone cable is the same on the opposite side. it would have to fall, without landing, on the road, phone cable, or driveway. the county, is grandfathered in as being responsible, close to the road. though if ya buy land now they got 50' road frontage. i can only let this tree fall. 😡 its dangerous standing. i paid my friends[they do tree work] to cut the branches that hang over the road long ago, and paid my friend to help me cut the branches. cost $600. the branches that are left lean to the phone lines. if they dont care, i dont. i warned them 10 or 12 years ago, maybe i'll warn then again?, that was when it was bell south, now its AT&T. ever try to call them up, an talk about a problem? we dont have a home phone., so i dont care. 😝
