A power line came down on our front lawn today at work. It made a nice little fire, and scorched the heck out of a good size patch of grass. And of course it left us mostly without power for about half the day. I had a lot of fun trying to hook up computers to the AC outlets that were still working, so we could get some critical payroll stuff done.
The best part, though, was when one of the PSE&G guys had to take a leak, and decided to do that right on the side of his truck, in full view of anyone who might have been looking in his direction. And a lot of people were, since they were looking out the windows gawking at the fire.
