Re: The grid affecting time

Your clock uses synchronous motors.  The RPM of the motor depends on line frequency.  If the grid slows down or speeds up so does your clock!

However, this is the first time I have heard it affect someone in a technical way. Usually you wouldn't notice a split second slow from a split second high on your wall clock.

And I was told we could depend upon those guys!

One thing I don't get in this story is how the electric grid affects clocks. And why not all clocks? Does the Hz of the grid speed up and slow down clocks?
