Holy cow!  My admiration to the brave service technician who heroically drove over and used a telescoping non-conductive pole to change out a farking fuse in less than five minutes.

It will cost them $5 to get it restored?

We always got extra recess whenever the power went out.

He'll clear the squirrel remains before he closes the jacks; almost certainly no actual fuses were hurt in this accident.  It'll take over 15 whole minutes.  People, this is Florida.  Yes, squirrels are prolific here, and just like wherever you live, they get into stuff.  When it's a transformer, they short it out, and blow the jacks.  The Florida tag is well deserved; I was born and raised here; I know.  But this is about as odd as water being wet on a Wednesday.

Last month a squirrel knocked out the water supply.  This one must have been an underachiever.

A squirrel once shorted out the transformer that supplied my house with power. Saw a big flash, heard a boom and the lights went out. Went outside to see the flaming transformer atop the power pole. power company guys got a huge kick out of the fried squirrel they found at the foot of the pole.

Students and parents said the timing couldn't have been worst as more than 800 students took the FCAT.

Really, it couldn't have been worst...

On the first day of the ridiculous FCAT?

That squirrel was staging a righteous protest.

/For those who might not know, the FCAT will likely ensure the dependability of Frak's Florida tag for generations to come.
