Vandal Behind Power Outages Transgression cuts electricity to 4,800 in Outagamie County By Greg Bump
Golly, Goober. This 'cher says power outage was caused by a Vandal not Y2k.
Nope, Gomer. We know better than that. You jist lissen up to old Unc.Fred now.
This sounds like a lot of baloney to me. Vandals? How often have you heard of vandals getting into power installations to cut power? Saboteurs, yes. But vandals, no. Especially out in the boondocks.

I've got to agree. This is yet another reach. A new excuse for a power outage that makes no sense at all. I guess squirrels, drunks hitting poles, etc. gets kind of stale after awhile.

Don't make light of the squirrels. They've been quiet recently. Too quiet, in my opinion.

No it is true. In the past power companies played it down because they didn't want to encourage copy-cats or give some others ideas. Lately that's changed and they are now offering rewards.
Mostly it is gun shot insulators.

Friday mean, GICC no have any info to post now. Maybe the "vandals" were not Y2k compliant but ready. Who knows? But the "Faithful" still post the same ole, same ole.
Even Marianne AM/FM Toilette Brain has learned to accept the SQUIRREL Story.
