About that very brief West Seattle power outage

Just after 11 am, a very brief power interruption hit us here in Upper Fauntleroy, and we also heard from Gatewood, Westwood, and High Point. Since that means some people might come home to flashing stove clocks (etc.) and wonder what happened, we checked with Seattle City Light‘s Scott Thomsen, who tells us the cause is listed as “squirrel.”

    Poor squirrel. At least he died doing something he loved.

    Squirrels love getting electrocuted?

      They appear to love running on wires, running up utility poles …

    With how relatively infrequent power outages have actually been in the area, the number of them lately is really becoming quite trying. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
