Power Pole Explosion

Yesterday's storm has caused quite a bit of havoc for me. It wasn't the first time we were out of power during a storm. But this time I saw the electric pole in front of my house exploded in a blindingly lightning. It continues 4-5 more times in the span of half an hour. Firemen has closed off our street because live wires were still dangling from the pole. We went out to the street with trepidation because we have to pick up our son from pre-school. I found there was a one foot deep flooded pond to wade through in order for us to go out. We are stopped from returned home for another hour until the PG&E people have arrived. The good things is PG&E restored the power by 9 pm. Also there seems to be no injury other than the damaged equipment.

Meanwhile I'm tallying the damage in household electronics and our power system. One of our cell phone charger that was plugged the wall has exploded. We first noticed this when we are puzzled to find an object that looks like a shell of a capacitor on the floor. Other equipment damages may end up causing us a few hundred dollars.
