When the wind blows

There have been five or six power lines down today in Winston-Salem due to the wind gusts, according to the fireman with whom I spoke. Above is what's left of the power line that melted my neighbor's driveway while arcing dramatically. On a happy note, my children now have a clear understanding of the dangers of downed wires. On another happy note, the fire department was on scene within about three minutes (though they had to wait another thirty or so for the power peeps to show up before they could do anything). Since I'm more than slightly accident-prone, that emergency responder response time was reassuring.
