Oh wow! At least it was wet. Some years ago, my sister was taking care of our place and she called to say that the well pump was off. Told her how to get it running again, but couldn't figure out why it had gone off. Got back home and things seemed okay until a neighbor told us that a transformer caught fire on the pole at the back of the property and started a small grass fire on our side and another neighbor's. You think we would have noticed!!! Property is only 1¼ acres! Apparently the firefighters used our hose to put it out and ran the water level down below the pump, so it shut itself off. Good heavens! They didn't even leave a note. I was shocked. Now PG&E comes round every few months to make sure all the vegetation is clear from under the poles that still have the old transformers. I've seen that along the road, where it's bare dirt under certain power poles, and now I know why!
