Testing the GRID

Hi Guy - what do you know about the national effort to test the grid sometime in November ?- call me if you have any leads on wood stoves  - the situation in the South Pacific is truly disturbing - and just because we are inland doesn't mean we won't be subject to the same terrifying winds.  I am not looking forward to this winter.
