Jeff came home to no power yesterday afternoon, and upon looking outside saw this. And let met tell you, it was the strangest feeling to turn the corner and see fire trucks in front our your house:
It seems the high powered line at the top of the pole broke off and shorted out the transformer.
He called the fire department, but their was not much they could do until Edison arrived….so the pole continued to burn right through, and eventually broke, that big transformer was caught up in the line and swinging in the breeze….
Edison finally arrived, cut the power, and the fire was extinguished…..
Edison brought MAJOR equipment in, worked through the night, put in a new pole and we woke up with power! Woohoo! Incidents like this are bound to happen, and its great to know how quick and efficient the repairs happened.
