Do you know how the NWS actually evaluated the storms in terms of warnings? Looking at your location right now, I see only a wind advisory, which I would not expect to trigger storm watch, but there may have been warnings yesterday/overnight. And for prior storms, sometimes the trigger seems to be various flood warnings, which can occur near the end of, or after, a storm has passed.During the last 2 storms, including Henri, Storm Watch activated the DAY AFTER the storm, which isn't useful at all. Today, we're in the 2nd day of a Noreaster in Massachusetts which was even forecast as a front page headline on CNN a couple of days ago, and still no Storm Watch. There are a bunch of local power outages, and we've had one outage at our house so far. If this is the same as the previous storms, Storm Watch will activate tomorrow -- after the storm has passed.
If I had the capability to force-charge the Powerwalls from the grid, I could stay on top of this myself, but being denied that capability has really reduced the usefulness of Tesla Powerwalls during storms.
Storm Watch is a good idea, but in practice here, it's been a complete and utter failure.
