I may be wrong-but I seriously doubt Hawaii is on the same grid-so that would make it 48  :)

OK... details, details. But it appears to be broken up a little more. And no mention of Hawaii: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continental_U.S._power_transmission_grid

So Texas is indeed on its own grid, but there's a few other major regions.

The electrical grid that powers mainland North America is divided into multiple regions. The Eastern Interconnection and the Western Interconnection are the largest. Three other regions include the Texas Interconnection, the Quebec Interconnection, and the Alaska Interconnection. Each region delivers 60 Hz electrical power. The regions are not directly connected or synchronized to each other, but there are some HVDC interconnections.

Or a genuine Hammond B3.  Synchronous 60Hz motor.  Is the organ on pitch or sharp a few cents?

As I mentioned in another thread yesterday, we should have standardised at 55Hz - tuned to A.  You could check your power with a tuning fork!

The reason you can't tuna fish is they have too many scales.

Take the microwave to work, or a friend's house that lives far enough away for a week.  Might not tell you much  but it will tell you something.
You will definitely learn how much you rely on a microwave.
