BRain Surgeons and Rocket Scientists
The Great Omnipotent One called me today with a couple funny stories. I can only post one of them.
Since Ivan hit, power has been restored to them, however, there are some trees that needed to be taken down. As he put it, he hired a Brain Surgeon and a bunch of Rocket Scientists from S. Carolina to take these trees down. If you recall, TGOO lives on a power easement and some of these trees were damaged and needed to be removed. Well his team of brain surgeons and rocket scientists took one of those trees down right across the power lines on the easement, where an explosion ensued and a fire started. He said he thinks at least 8 people called 911. I can just imagine my Mom wigging out. Her big fear is fire. I guess I came by that naturally.
Anyway, the fire department showed, putting the fire out and the folks directly behind my parent's home and many many neighborhoods south suddenly lost power. My parents did not!
So Gulf Power is out there right now restringing the power lines.
What idiots. You would think if you removed trees for a living you would ensure you didn't ever take out power lines. Especially not the big ass kind attached to the transformers on a power easement.
