Thanks To Loki

I was out tonight hunting down Loki, who decided not to come back when called. Through the trees and brush, I noticed something new. A dead Birch tree was blown over and hung on our power lines. We hadn’t lost power. It didn’t even flicker. We’ve had wind for the last few days, so who knows how long it was hanging there. However, while in my office, I saw a flash of light from the corner of my eye. I decided to notify Minnesota Power about the situation. Less than 20 minutes later, a lineman showed up to cut the tree off the line. I talked to him and let him into the backyard, where he discovered that one of the lines had pulled away from the pole. So, now I have two linemen ready to cut our power and climb up the pole to reattach the line.
