Dr. Frankenstein’s wet dream.

***Dave has an entry pointing to a video clip of a big assed electrical arc some power company guys witnessed when their equipment didn’t work the way it was supposed to. The page also contains some discussion on what the hell is going on so you can consider it your electrical science lesson of the day.

It’s damned impressive and way more dangerous looking than what you see in most movies. The amazing thing to me is that these guys then went about repairing the equipment after witnessing what it was capable of producing. Next time I see my Detroit Edison guy I’m going to give him a great big hug.
