I have two of these meters that I don't need, I'm willing to let one or both go. I am not certain if they work but both have free moving needles. I am currently without power here in Northern California, when my power is restored I can get you more information on them.

How bad is that storm??  Is it heavy rain and wind?? It looked like a real storm sell hanging over Calf.!Maybe we could talk on the phone someday when things let up for you Mike

The weather is a challenge, though we have had worse. The current situation is a series of storms one after another with minimal breaks between for cleanup  restoration of power, only to be hit by the next. We are in a rural area and the power utility is pretty stressed, and when a break only effects a small number of customers, it gets lower priority. We are hunkered down with plenty of generator fuel, firewood, and food, but time in the garage is not happening.

Has the rain passed out of town yet?? I hope so for you.
