I'm curious. How would plasma do all of that?
Somewhere around 1 am, the power (and internet) went out. Wife was woke up by my computer speaker making noise- it does that when the power cuts out and back on. She said that she woke up, looked out the window (it faces west-ish), and said she saw what she described as an orange glow that was just like the sun coming up. About a minute later, sirens. Also note: No sound of an explosion, or rumble, or anything. This thing was totally silent, minus the sirens. If it was someone hitting a pole and a transformer went out, I doubt it'd have been orangey and it'd have been more of a flash than a warm red glow. Plus, no kaboom. I went out for a walk after I got told about this the next morning, had a look around the general area, and no so much as a twig was out of place. No scorching from a fire, no debris, nothing. Even more fun: NOTHING on the news or police blotter. I doubt I'll get answers, but it sure was weird.
