Power Line Troubles

Today some power line troubles in our backyard led to firework-like explosions, a 911 call, and a fire truck response.  Consumers Energy ended up shutting off the power on our block, driving a truck into our yard, and cutting back the trees.  With the power off, neighbors gathered to watch the high wire work.  Here are some photos:
