I heard on the radio this morning about that (I live in Fort Worth). My first thought was of a story on how "terrorists" would use rifles to target
transformers. Maybe they've been plinking...
As for the dust theory, when I heard that I thought that was the weakest explanation I've ever heard. I've lived in Texas since 1977. NEVER EVER have
poles caught on fire becuase they were "dusty". Add to that these poles all decided to let the dust get to them and spontaniously burst in flames AT
THE SAME TIME ???
There is more to this than meets the eye.
And yes, Texas has their own grid.
Oh, and while we're talking electricity... prediction: TXU (a large electric company here in Texas, the original that provided electricity before
deregualtion) will go bankrupt within one year. Count on it.
