Hi OP, not doubting your story, but definitely doubting the official utility company story.
A large warehouse like yours is not served by a "transformer." Not a singular one anyway. It would be served by a series of transformers, and they
would not be the typical transformers on a light pole somewhere that a driver might hit them. Your warehouse would be on an entirely different supply
than the surrounding residents, because the residential power and the industrial power have differing needs, and differing priorities.
I once was a driver, who fell asleep, and hit a light pole, and it did knock out an entire power grid, so it is possible, but in my case there was
extreme cold, ice on the lines, and an overload of the system from people using extra heaters and lights. In your case, it is basically impossible
for a driver to have taken out an entire power grid.
The power company is lying about something, and that is always a suspicious way to start a disaster.
I'm just going off of what I was told man. I was driving on the highway, on the way to work, and I saw flashing lights. I thought "oh wow, that's
kinda close to my job." Then I get off the highway and I'm following and ambulance.
I was hoping no one got hurt because that's been happening lately. Accident free days have been reset at like 7 and 4 in the last few weeks, but
before that it'd go up to 100 or 200.
Sure enough, as I pulled in to the entrance, the line for the exit was full. Everyone was flagging me to turn around. So I slammed on the brakes and
rolled the window down and they said "A transformer is down, just go home. There's no power."
So...seeing as how it was 7:40a.m. and I already didn't even want to go as it is, I didn't argue.
I went home and called my dad who works on the shift before me, he told me someone hit either the transformer or a pole with a car. He fell asleep.
Again, I didn't argue. I'm just pissed because if it's not all fixed by tomorrow I have to work on the weekends.
I also thought that it was weird that the day before "someone fell asleep" and took out the power to a military industrial complex that my
girlfriends mom works out. They all had to go home too.
That place is Gentex Corporation or Essilor America in Simpson, PA if you'd like to google that.
Mine is McLane Dist. in Jessup, Pa.
I didn't think anything weird was going on until I heard that it was a driver that fell asleep. Just like the day before somewhere else.
