Never could understand why anyone would want the ground up. Cords hang down, if slightly pulled out the equipment ground would be lost first, yet the H and N still inserted. So your still energized with no eq. ground.

try it. it aint gonna happen. if you look even with a quick glance you will see the ground pin is a lot longer than hot and neutral. the ground inserts first, and unless modified is the last to be removed.

if you can connect hot and neutral without connecting ground on an unmodified plug/outlet then you are amazing.

Isnt a metal gang box grounded anyway so water would touch the grounded box anyway?
I haven't seen a metal gang box in new construction in quite a while.
(exterior and service areas excepted)

edit- I just remembered being extremely frightened at Del Fest after the storm a couple years ago with a foot of standing water everywhere around the stage and no clue where the power lines were.


Hey Bud -

Why worry?  I was more worried about getting blown away or hit by lighting.

The generator was disabled early on in the storm not turned back on until we traced all cable runs (power, speaker cable, motor cable, etc..) and made sure they were dry. Feeder was put on pallets where needed, though much of the feeder run was in grass instead of mud puddles since it was on the other side of the fence from the dancing hippies.

Did you not stay to see the 20 festival workers manning the 4 blow dryers for two hours to get us back up and running Smile  What a weekend...

Jason,

I weathered the storm in my trailer which has actually been through worse. I talked to you briefly onstage just as you were starting the cleanup process (I was with Gil landry at the moment). In hindsight, it really wasn't the stage area that had me worried but the hodge podge of cables and boxes in the camping area. To cross from the stage to the camping area you had to cross what was basically a small river that had a number of cables on the ground. Where they went or came from I am not sure, but they probably were not from your main generator.

Getting the rig back together and up for the last set of the night was probably one of the most significant and impressive acts of "the show must go on" I have personally seen.

I had a noon loadin that sunday back in Annapolis, so I cut out early Sunday and did not see too much of the cleanup.

Hope to see you again soon under better conditions.

Upside down edisons...

My understanding is that there is no "right" way to mount an Edison; The NEC is silent on the issue.

Here is one I took at a local party center. I swear on my boy scout handbook this is not a gag.
