The Squirrel went Berserk….

Laying in bed reading USA today and a gun blast goes off right next to my window!  Paul “the electricity blew up!”   Paul jumps up, pulls on the shorts and out he goes.  Yep, no power to our power pole.  Are you kidding me, I am thinking the RV blew up!  We are the only ones parked at the Elks Lodge in Midwest City, OK.  He checks things out and observes that it looks like the transformer to the pole that serves us is blown up.  It is all black and ugly.  A call to the local power company and we start the generator.

While waiting for the electric company to respond Paul walks over to the pole and on the ground is a very large, very dead squirl!

and I was thinking we were going to have a bad day!
