I'm also in Texas (Travis County) and have heard of this recently. The first thing, for whatever reason, that crossed my mind [don't judge me for my out of the box thoughts] was that there is not a whole lot of real evidence of any of the more recent human civilizations other than stones that show signs of vitrification (melting).

Would it be possible that this 2012 thing is another instance where everything not made of natural earth burns? IDK. Just a thought off the top of my head...nothing too deep.

Otherwise, I think it's funny that a Lineman tries to explain it off as dust shorting the transformer out due to fog...I've never heard something more ridiculous.

Probably has nothing to do with it but a friend of mine that lives near there posted this on their facebook this morning.

"So im on the bus... next thing I know the sky lights up. People say they saw an orange streak through the air. Two things im hearing : aliens or a meteor."

Likewise, to cause a short and/or surge THAT powerful would take an ENORMOUS amount of electricity. Remember...the wood is SUPPOSED to be DAMP already due to all that "low lying fog"...so it shouldn't be very flammable...RIGHT?



Unless the poles are coated in creosote which many are, especially if they are older, that stuff is very flammable.......I use to work on power lines.......

I can tell you that depending on where they are located and situated, if something happened at a power station and the failsafes didnt kick in it could cause a surge in a string and burn down poles for miles......

also if there is enough dirt around insulators etc, a fog could cause it to track due to the moisture and set the poles on fire

Ill have to research more , i do find it interesting that it seems to have happend in multiple locations

No mystery at all. It's just the solar system passing through a dense part of the galaxy which causes too much electricity to flow from one place to another.

This was seen in Canada when Auroras pass though, transformers blow.

Do you want to hear my theory? Mine is a little more suited to those that look at things from a totally different perspective. More suited to a "denying Ignorance" website that members could either prove me right or prove me wrong. Seemingly though it seems that ATS members have in fact forgotten why they joined ATS.
I joined ATS to find what could be possibly the answers. Not taking anything as fact just because somene says it is because it is scientificaly proven, or because some nugget has more weight behind what he says because he has letters behind his name or these expensive pieces of paper called certificates or qualifications. (Education was never supposed to be at cost. Never.) The sharing of knowledge is what has moved us all through the ages yet the addiction to money is currently holding us all back. Money effects everything because we as a species have created a monster that cant actually do anything on its own. It is man that rides the beast. Dont you get it. But depending on the levels on which you will go to in order to ensure you have it, will determine the level at which it must be destroyed.
I believe in the end times and this is my vision or philosophy. I have only recently realized what i can do and i swear that unless anyone upstairs is playing games with me i am able to predict the future in a sense using a technique called "Thought Experiments". I am good at it. I predicted that there would be something significant happen in Egypt and i titled the thread "Heres a heads up" Watch this space. Notice the date i posted it in relation to the start of the uprising.

I cannot stress how important i believe that my visions are to all of this. In my Iridium thread i describe it as massive and that it is a conspiracy this thread i wish you would all read it because it is very important in relation to prophecy, but i am here to share with you my opinion on this topic and using thought experiment technique which is taking every eventuality or possibility from a situation, a story, etc etc and finding the best option.

This thread of yours is where i predict that the energy companies may actually be using pylons, telephone masts, powerlines to harness energy from the atmosphere, which means that they are creating power freely but charging a fortune. (This may not be the exact fact but something along those lines,...excuse the pun
).
Dont tell me its not possible either, because it is. Its as simple as taking 10 glasses of water and sequencing them together as a circuit (circ=circular) tell me why i had the equivalent of a battery for a smoke alarm. The energy doubled in power every glass, and i was also to light LED's. No im not gonna post proof but i will say try it.
Pyramids will be found to be connected to energy and explains how civilizations were able to sustain themselves, I think that theres a lot of knowledge that remains hidden and in order to keep the sheep asleep and only provide education that is structured carefully. When i say this,......I mean only allowing you to learn what you are allowed to.
I would like to share more of my thoughts on this time we are in and how i see it and hopefully share my interpritation of what i see.
At the moment i see we are straying way off path and we must stop trying to grab onto and save a financial system that is failing, always has but not because of money itself, like i said before the beast riding. 7 Hills do you know what they are?What they represent?
You all will soon. We are humans. Are we really going to allow money to determine amounts of aid? What you are allowed to learn? Where you live? What class you are, CLASS!!!! There shouldnt be any classes. All for one, as one.
We may have our differences in colours, languages,beliefs, religions, likes & Dislikes you name it and humans seem to argue about it.
Nations are suffering poverty and famine and i have tried to find a suitable excuse that we can give to God when we will be explaining how and why we allowed it. How will we explain to him that we put a pricetag on Aid, aid that will determine if one of "HIS" creations lives or dies.
Or how lifesaving treatment requires a payment, i watched one case on the news of a child needing life saving treatment but requires money for the treatment. Seriously WTF!! Who ever made that decision want to be sorting that one out because although you may already know of what is to come, what is to pass, and if it hasnt passed its not to late. That goes for all of those bound to the system who are crapping themselves because the time is coming when the veil will be removed. I know it and you know it.
If people in high places are reading this and are stuck/ looking for the missing pieces may i add a few that i find "MAY" play a major role in the near future.
Blue Water Supercomputer for starters
Iridium
The Sun and its influence on our planet and other planets. I am talking about geology. Earthquakes, CME's and impact on Earth and Moons connection

I can't see how this would be related to events in Texas, so maybe just a wierd coincidence, but we had our electricity blow out for our house and three others on Saturday, I think it was, then on Monday the transformer blew up completely. We keep joking that it is helping us prepare ourselves for the end of the month disasters.

I heard that the Earth and our sun is passing through the Milky Way Galactic Plane.
December is going to be a busy month.

It seems the fire started around 10 a.m. which is around the time the fog started to lift so Im leaning towards this as our cause. I work outdoors also and nothing felt strange...would i feel strong solar flares? Im guessing Yes!


Considering the radiation that hits us from solar flares is not perceivable to the human body (in any known way), no. You wouldn't have felt a strong solar flare.

Really? Are you sure? Do you have any links where I could read about this? I never heard that about the transformers and auroras!

I experienced this happening in my town a few years ago. It looked like it was burning a layer of something off the poles and even some spans then it stopped.

No one seemed concerned in my city.

If the "dust" explanation was so accepted, this thread would be as long as it is, thus far. Further, if dust could just short out when low lying fog arrived. . .then that problem would also be so common across the world, every day!
This reminds me of when the telegraph lines also burned up in 1859. That event just may help to explain this one.

There was just a 2.8 eq in east texas.
That never happens here.

Nice connection to the 1859 Carrington Event. If we were having an event like that at all, wouldn't it be known, yet? I've read in an earlier post that the sun is quiet right now. I'd like to just toss one out there...could it be that our protective layer up there may be damaged so that dangerous radiation is getting through without needing a Carrington type CME? It could explain all the strangeness as of late. And sure, I'll go ahead and throw it out there, but doesn't HAARP mess with the ionosphere where it could possibly do some damage? I'm sure if this were to happen they wouldn't tell us about it.

It's been about 24hrs since this started... plenty of time...

In looking at the major nat'l MSM sites, unless I just overlooked it.... I'm not seeing ANY articles about this. It's only on their local news sites, probably in places where they can't hide it anyways...

The deafening silence is a sign to me that they want to keep it hush-hush, and that there IS something sneaky/malevolent going on...

Dang, I go hunting not too far from there. I've never heard of an earthquake in that area!

5k seems awful deep for fracking. There are rigs all around here and we haven't had any earthquakes.

Off topic: Do you still have to "box" around the center of town to go through Carthage or did they ever build a bypass like around Tenaha?

Good job on the thread, went way better than my first couple lol. But any ways that
Is wierd never seen that happen. Maybe a powerful overload in one transformer that spread to the others. Haven't seen anything like that here in California.
