I’m pleased they replied to my e-mail:


We are aware of the outages and found and corrected the problems on that circuit. Several poles and pieces of equipment had been damaged by lightning. It took a while before they failed causing the brief outages by operating the substation breaker. All problems were fixed by yesterday afternoon.

However, today a squirrel got onto an underground riser and blew up a cutout and lightning arrestor. This caused the breaker to operate today.

If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to call me.

  2. A squirrel?

    Just think of the damage they could do if they were organized.

    The entire eastern seaboard without power? Must be the SQUIRREL ARMY!

Tell me what you're thinking...
