A Big Wind Knocked it Down
I was out running errands today, and needed to go to the hardware store. But the street was full of police cars and fire trucks. I worked my way around back, and then saw this! Yikes! The wind was howling all day - some wind gusts up to 55 MPH. The second I saw this pole, I realized what had happened - the whole bottom of the power pole was rotted. It just split apart in pieces at the bottom and folded itself up. When I finally got in the hardware store, the people there said that it had only happened 20 minutes before I got there. They heard a loud "BOOM" and their lights flickered. A little excitement for the neighborhood.
