extraordinary amount of fog in areas that had not seen it in a long time.
So, yeah, if everyone Googles 'fog catches power poles on fire', or something like that, you will see stories going back. Just not as widespread and
It is awesome in its weirdness. I don't mean to be a ghoul but it doesn't get any better than dozens of power poles spontaneously bursting in to
If it started happening on my block, I would crank up some Sabbath.
Hey ATS, I just wanted to add that even though the reasons behind the fires is very mundane the number of poles catching fire and the wide geographic
area over which they ignited really does set this episode apart as extraordinary. This is from the same article that i posted from last year...
"Very unusual for us to have five pole top fires in one night ," said Dan Wilkerson, Bryan Texas Utilities General Manager.
So over 60 poles in 6 counties must be very, very, very unusual, I'm thinking. Seems to me this may qualify the occurrence to be known as the Texas
Power Pole Event of 2012.
