What just happened?


They cut them on my Mom's property as it is in their vested interest to not have to repair the lines later. It does take them a long time to get around to doing it.

Ever watch that show 1000 ways to die? ( Half of it seems fake or suspicous but the other half doesn't)

Sinkholes in Florida swallowing houses and people while they sleep etc etc. A person can get pretty neurotic or paranoid if we have to worry about them all.

You can grab a 100, 000 volt power line and hang from it and you will be fine. So long as you are just hanging from it. Now reach out and touch a grounded item (steel tower, maybe a tree if its wet) and that power will now flow through you and towards the ground, and you won't be quite so fine.

The squirrel is fine so long as its only running along the power line. Its when its transitioning from the power line to something else that its a little risky.
