After my unexpected adventure with electricity last night, I couldn’t resist walking down the street to see what had caused the damage.
It looks like this branch fell on the wires in the rain, hit just the wrong spot, and shorted out the transformer, causing the unscheduled fireworks display I witnessed. Not much damage, right?
But look what it did to the poor tree!
I couldn’t get a clear picture, but the burn mark goes up pretty high.
GAH!!! Electricity is dangerous!
