WHoa, didnt even think of that... I'm 2 blocks from a college, 2
blocks from their stadium and a block and a half from the train that
runs between them. =/
My brother-in-law worked at a small college, no stadium, and they got
their power directly from Pennsylvania Powers main line. It may be like
someone flushing the toilet while your in the shower. There's only so
much power that can run through the service for the area, and he who has
the biggest pipe wins :-) Not to mention biggest bill.
