Wow That Really Freaked Me Out
    #4071823 - 04/19/05 10:31 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Last night, I am sitting in my office on the computer where I can also see outside. It's late, I am a bit inebrieated, and all of the sudden there is this HUGE flash of sparks like a fireworks display outside, and my power goes out at the same time. So, now it's pitch black everywhere, even inside. In about two seconds, my power returns, but the houses accross from me are all dark.

Wow that really freaked me out!

This morning, the guys from the power company are up on the lift looking at the transformer that fried across the street.

What stuff has freaked you folks out lately or at some point?

News Update - The transformer box in question is completely black on the outside. Obviously it was a faulty transformer and not a photon torpedo from alien spacecraft of the planet Origami 7 hitting the power line.

2 hofman millenniums and the dark pits of my mind really freaked me out, inexplainably inexplicit.

Where do you live that you have never seen the fireworks display of a blow transformer before?

It is really cool, along the flying sparks the sky flashes purple. In one place I live up on a hill, during a bad lighten storm I got the show of a blown transformer and had ball lightening in my living room. THAT freaked me out!

When in St Thomas they blew about once a month. It was cool to watch the island of St. John 4 miles across the bay just shut down and go dark all at once. You know whats going on, but it's still eerie.

This is the first blown transformer with it's flash of sparks that I've seen. What strikes me as odd is that the weather was clear and dry last night. Obviously a lightening strike would torch one, but even rain and humidity could be a contributing force. Old age?

I've lived lots of places and now live in Washington state.

When I was a kid during a thunderstorm we had some ball lightning which rolled down the hill on our tiny paved street. It was freakout material. I can't imagine any in my living room. Did it leave burned carpet or paint?

I would freak out knowing I had dark pits in my mind. Hmm, now that you mention it...

What the heck is a hofman millenium?

A planet made entirely of folded paper? What will they think of next?
