Friday Night, Lights Out

CRACK!... a car alarm, and the lights went out. Late friday night had us in the dark, something loud had happened in front of out apartment that killed the power to our place. A trip outside found that the whole block was dark and shining the flashlight around showed the cause. One of the many Bradford Pear trees in front lost a big limb, spanning the street and resting on the power lines opposite our apartment building. Two our fellow residents were outside calling Georgia Power and kavetching about the 5 times in the past our property's trees had lost limbs. About 40 minute after the neighborhood went dark, a big hook-and-ladder from Atlanta Fire pulled in, shined its lights on the tree and held tight until Georgia Power came by.
