>My 60 hz clocks in las vegas gained 4minutes and 45 seconds approximately.
>At 6pm pacific daylight time I ran grid monitoring program which gets time updates from somewhere in washington state.  It showed the grid frequency at 60.06 hz..
>the grid was at 60.06 from 6:00 to 6:15 and mostly likely much earlier than 6pm when I heard the news and looked at the grid frequency.
>Power engineers say 60.05hz is where masive power failures woulld prevail.
