Dancing Horse Power Outage

Residents on Dancing Horse Drive experienced a brief power outage recently while repair crews replaced a broken utility pole on that private driveway.

The crew chief stated that he had been called out at about 3 a.m. to determine the cause of the outage and, on finding the broken pole, made arrangements for a crew to return after daybreak; after which the repair was a relatively straightforward process.

The original pole, which had been broken at a height of about 9 feet above-ground, showed no marks indicating any sort of vehicular impact, so the cause of the break remains something of a mystery.
