Had a squirrel take out the substation at one of my former jobs. I was outside on the forklift. I see a brown rock go flying past the corner of the building. It's a piece of ceramic used on cattle fences? I attempt to drive back in, but the automatic doors won't open.

The Utility Company says they found a squirrel well done inside one of the cabinets.

Nuts roasting on an open fire?

saw a squirrel trip the transformer on the pole at my house one sunday morning while drinking coffee. definition of flying squirrel.  went out and it looked like someone stuck an M-80 down it's throat with all internal organs missing.  at least it was quick for the poor guy.

Mister LaForge!  We need power, NOW!
I'll try to "backfeed" power to the ship but first I have to energize eight circuits individually, according to Starfleet procedures.
Just do it quickly.  Shatner is requesting a walkon
Oh jeez.  Is that it? Then, I'll just throw this big switch here.  Warp 9 ready, sir.
Ensign Crusher, put your booger pickers on Warp 9

Maybe if the squirrel had put his coffee down before climbing the pole he'd still be alive. Safety is every squirrel's business.

Probably because his nuts exploded when he bit through that wire. . .

Just wait until China realizes they can cripple the entire country with a few strategically placed trained squirrels.

Weird that this was an Energy United outage, when Lake Norman is literally owned by Duke Energy. Which does indeed suck.

I've seen the same.  Happened around 4pm in the afternoon.  It literally took 24h to bring the facility back to running normal.  The power was back on in an hour or so, then there was the big washup, then a long startup.  I had a 24h day and took much of the latter part of the week off.

At another place a racoon got into a substation and fried itself.

My dad was sitting at home watching a (pre-LA move) Raiders football game one weekend. It was in the 4th quarter, the Raiders were down but driving upfield when *BAM* a squirrel got fried on the breaker out at the back corner of the yard. By the time the repair crew got there and reset it, he missed the end of the game.

Two weeks later, he's watching another Raiders game. Second half of a close contest *BAM* another squirrel but apparently a really big one. The pole breaker actually failed completely. He ended up missing the rest of that game, too.

The thing is: he actually worked for the utility company that served our house, at the testing and repair facility. He knew the crew that came out as well as what was out in the yard back at the office. He told their crew chief to bring out a particular breaker that had just been repaired, and put it up there. Now, this particular breaker was around two or three times the capacity of the failed one (and equally as robust), but suitably rated for the voltage capacity of the lines in the area.

About a month later, he's fixing himself some lunch and about to head downstairs to the den to watch some TV when there was a pop, and the lights flickered...but stayed on.

As I recall, that one stayed up several years until the day lightning struck the next pole down in our neighbor's yard.
