“When the main switch was turned on, the automatic overload protection immediately tripped, probably due to the imbalance of the capacitive and inductive load. This happened two more times. The fourth time the switch held, and Dale Rash recorded the official time the power was turned on: 4:18 P.M. on October the 18 of 1988.”
