    The transformer across the street from me “blew up” at 11:26 last night, preceded twice by that first, loud, ominous hum that I’ve come to know so well. The flash of light is always incredible.

    I’m grateful to have a UPS Back-up battery, which acts as a super surge protector and gives me a half hour of time to save all my documents and shut down my computer properly. With all the trees around here, I highly recommend it!

    M-on-a-bike: Same here. I heard the bang of the transformer blowing up. Sounded just like when it blew last Thursday during the ice storm. I’m just over near Highline Hospital and the transformer sounded pretty darn close.
