Re: Kindly requesting some knowledgeable advice on lighthouses DANIEL 09/11/19 12:11 AM
Another idea would be using a steam generator to power the light and the keeper pushed the generator too hard and the boiler blew out.

example is the De Meritens Magneto Generator
The French De Meritens magneto generators worked with great steadiness , revolving at 600 rpm. A De Meritens magneto was installed at the Lizard lighthouse, in England, and was used from 1881 until May 1950.

Lighthouse slide show Dave H 09/03/19 01:28 AM
MSN highlighted lighthouses today. Well, 30 lighthouses and a gift shop. They definitely favored the east coast, and I thought they should have shown more Great Lakes lights. There some very nice images.

Yeah, Daniel, this is a case where it is far better to be over cautious then to hope things go as forecast. Winds like that can do some very serious damage and should not be underestimated. Hopefully things do hold to the present party line and the storm stays a way off coast and heads north. Be nice if it just found a way to burn itself out before it hits any of the coast.

BTW, if you get your Barber's Point and find that you are kicking yourself for not getting any of Harry's earlier pieces, though the Jones Point is sold out, we still have some Rock Island and Palmer Island pieces available. They can be ordered here...

Glad she is coming around. She is a real storm trooper to say the least.
