No squirrels. I went for a drive yesterday up into Canada for a hike up Grouse Mountain. I do that about every month with my girlfriend north of the boarder in Vancouver. I was at her house in Shaughnessy (posh part of Vancouver) and I heard a pop that sounded like gunfire. The lights went out. I went outside looking for what was going on. Then a BC hydro truck came up and parked under a transformer by the house. I watched him replace a fuse. When he reconnected it, a huge explosion happened in the transformer (we are talking Hollywood pyrotechnics here). I thought he was killed or hurt, as he was about two feet from the biggest explosion I ever saw. He was dazed. He eventually came down and I talked with him. He thought the problem was in the fuse, not the transformer. He was wrong. He was on his own, no partner. Question: what happened?
