The electrical pole
in front of my house is on fire
5 am the power went off
so I got out of bed
to see if everyone's power was out
Yup it was
but wait what is the red floating stuff....
Looks like sparks
So I look up
and what do I see....
yup flames coming out of the pole
(I didn't get any pix til it had
died down - I was to
worried in awe)
WAIT THERE ARE FLAMES
COMING OUT OF THE ELECTRICAL POLE!!
and the embers are landing on my van!!
So I called 911
The fire truck came
and they sat there and watched it burn...
I mean ?????
the the electric company comes
the fire dept leaves
the guy gets up in the bucket with a fire extinguisher
an hr or so later......
All fixed and back to business
What a way to start the day
Ps this whole episode fried our router
so no internet until late last night
