Angels Camp, CA set for "Y2K Water Test". This will happen Feb 12. Public is invited. "On Feb 12, the water treatment plant crew will make sure the year 2000 flows in smoothly by advancing the time on the computer to Dec. 31, 11:50 pm., 1999." Calaveras Enterprise, Feb. 5 1999
Got one spare bed if anyone interested in watching. Or I could put up six or ten at my Love Creek, mountain retreat. Retreat, get it?
Will they pass or no? Place your bets! I bet they pass! They have a backup! "...a generator will also be installed the day of the test."

Angels Camp...Hmmmm, nice country, we go 4-wheeling up there often on the Ramsey Trail. Since Angels Camp is a rural community, I'm betting they will pass (millions aren't depending on them and they probably aren't that high tech). However, how much fuel storage for the generator? Your a long ways from Stockton.

Freeman, hey sounds like a plan, but why don't you suggest to them to put the generator in place before the test ,not the day of the test? And make sure the generator will take over the load for this water plant. What the heck, you will only be watching right,taking bets??? Furie....
