A severe thunderstorm just went by and knocked out the power. Here is a picture of the tree in our driveway that got hit by lighting.

Nice. I have seen more trees like that than I can even count. Hope they get a tree crew out there to remove it quickly for you!

Thanks, I just called CMP again and they said they couldn`t give me a time but the truck does have our order for repairing power and removing the tree.

There was one like that across the driveway today. I was late to work because I couldn't get out before I sawed it up (I made one cut, and dragged the rest out of the way with the GL :)

That's what I do. I never call anyone. I even straightened up my leaning CMP pole with a come a long and some bracing.

I have tomorrow off, so I'll actually cut up all the shit that's fallen and clean it up. I just didn't have time to dick with it today.

Definitely not smart to do if the tree is on the wires. I have seen some scary shit. Biggest thing is the lines aren't always dead.

Quoted for truth. Just because it isn't sparking doesn't mean it's dead.

Yea, I don't touch anything that involves wires. I have solar so I'm safe cleaning up things around my place, but out on the road, EEK! I stay away. 11kv isn't a joke.

Do you have any other trees like that, Rob? If so dibs on a parking spot under one during the next severe thunderstorm.
