Sunday morning at 10 AM, Bob was walking Jake around the block, I was walking laps around the pool and under the power lines and I heard ZZZZZYT ZZZZZT over my head. I knew what it would be. Hustled to the other side of the yard and there it was. The neighbors 50 foot bamboo had fallen on the power line. this happens often, but usually it just fries the tip. This one was to big and did not burn through but hung down 10 feet to the ground wire causing both places it touched to flame and smoke.
I ran inside while
|the 6 foot piece|
I called the "power line down number" for our electric company and they sent a cute young guy to cut the thing off the lines. I totally forgot to take the cute guy's photo with the extension pole. Because
while he was STANDING on the ground HOLDING the pole and cutting the flaming bush I stood inside ready to call 911 to save him and the idiot husband who was standing next to him..
|the 10 foot piece|
While the cute guy was cutting the flames got higher and he ran around the house and out to the truck and back and I thought he went for HELP...
He came back and put a claw on the end of the pole saw and grabbed the flaming thing and threw it on the ground..
I was REALLY weak from Adrenalin Rush, but I did manage a few photos...
Later inside, I said to Bob as soon as my adrenalin calms down I will finish putting our pills in the weekly dividers.
He said WHAT Adrenalin rush? from WHAT? This from the man who said
don't call anyone, it will burn itself down.
And I said and burn through the wires dropping them in the POOL or ON your head..
Can you say Mars and Venus????
