The power going out on my line is fairly common as it happens at least every couple of months. I have a backup generator that kicks in and I usually never find out why it went out. Today I did find out why. There is a music festival going on a few miles from me. There are several intersections where the police direct traffic at midnight and they put up portable light towers at those intersections. A man was raising the light tower and hit the power line causing the explosion, starting the fire and knocking him out. No word yet on his condition. The power line runs along the North side of the road. The traffic would be coming from the South going North so the logical place for the light would be on the South side of the intersection where it could be extended to it's maximum height. I don't know why he was moving it at 9:45 this morning. I could understand it happening when it's dark out but he should have been able to see the power lines.
