Ugh, great. The electricity has always been a bit dodgy in the house and it's not -completely- unusual for the power to go out even during an otherwise perfect sunny day.
The bang was more unusual then the power going out though and worth getting out of bed to investigate...
By the time I got up and got dressed I noticed there was a bit of a commotion going on out on the street.
Not exactly a good site to see first thing in the morning.
So what happened?
You can kind of see it there in the background. The telegraph pole across the street apparently EXPLODED! And then caught on fire.
So I had a rather boring day without power while lots of clever boys came and swapped poles around and restrung the wires; power was back up by 3pm!
Here's hoping for no more random explosions...
