Alien Outages

Outage

We couldn't resist...it's too tempting. We have changed the names to protect the confused, but it actually happened.

From: xxxxxx
To: xxxxxxx
CC: xxxxxxx
Subject: 07/29/xx @0027 Operation on the xxxx 115kv Substation
Date: xxxxxxx

xxx,xxx,
We speculate that the culprit for this event was a bushing failure caused by a meteorite hitting at xxx substation (3.41 miles from xxx). Physical evidence shows a hole in the bushing and a dent in the tank. Reported eyewitness accounts of "fire from the sky".

xxxxx, please change the outage cause from "unknown" to "meteor".

Thanks,
xxxx
