Yea..it was a semi headed west on Phelps road. It clipped a low hanging cable line that snapped back almost 50 feet and shook the poles hard enough to pop a breaker somewhere down the line..national grid and time warner had it fixed and working again in under an hour from when the break happened. My thing is...didnt the semi driver notice the low hanging cable and the loud pop sound, and the poles damn near breaking from the swaying? Must not, cause he kept on driving. My power is back on, and a neighbor gave a description of the truck...hopfully they catch the careless moron.
