Some Excitement !

I had to call 911 this evening. The neighbor behind our house called us to ask if we were burning something. We said "No ..." so she asked us to look out back. Sure enough ... there was a fire burning. It flared up in such a way that we figured (correctly) that it was an electrical fire. The lines must have come down as a result of all the wind we've been having today. The power in the house flickering off for a second was also probably related. It was interesting to hear our own address on the emergency scanner. The fire company is outside now watching over the fire and blocking our road (the downed lines are laid across the road). I suppose the electric company has to flip a switch before anyone can do anything.
