Photo: this was good for three transformers and a power line

Saturday, December 15, 2018

This is on 8th NE just south of 174th. It took out the electrical line and three transformers just before 6pm on Friday, December 14, 2018.

Thank you to the reader who sent it in.

As of 9pm on Saturday, December 15, 2018, 27 households in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park were still without power. At least one of those houses has a tree lying on the roof, complicating the repairs.

At my house three rather large tree limbs smacked against the house and fence attached to the house. They were, strangely enough, from two different trees but ended up on top of each other. Two of the branches were around 14 feet long. Amazingly, they fell on each side of the power lines and cable attaching to my house, without damage or even a power blink.

It was impressively loud, but not as loud as the transformer in the backyard, which I watched explode.

That's enough excitement for the winter.
