FYI if your vehicle comes in contact with live power lines you need to stay in the vehicle if you feel it’s safe, or jump free of the vehicle... if you exit the vehicle and touch the ground and the vehicle at the same time, you will become the pathway for the power to ground.

This one looked pretty well grounded up front Scary stuff there but I'm glad everyone turned out ok! And the Lodge keeps going, too.

I just clicked on the link and it took me straight to the pics in FB. I didn’t have to provide any info to just view them. Did it ask you for something when you tried?

I got them to load. I have a lot of security on my laptop to prevent trackers, cookies, and other malware from being installed/used. Fakebook won't load correctly unless you let it install some of those agents. I used one of my zombie machines to access the link and the pics loaded.

OK. I don't Facebook. I saw the images and the comments. Any idea why the powerlines were across a road at that height??

Bill hasn’t provided any update on this FB post so no official explanation.

Having said that, a 13KV line is one of the last distribution voltage levels before the transformers that step down voltage to commercial and residential customers, so is common. Line probably had dropped due to damage from wind/rain or somebody hydroplaning and hitting a wood pole. Certainly could have ruined their day!
