  • A couple of months ago I saw this headline in our paper, " Power Outage Due to Squirrel." I thought it was funny. It said that the power downtown was off for and hour and a half, and that the squirrel somehow to a main power box. Apparently, the squirrel had decided to gnaw on the cord. But, at the end of the article it said that, "The fate of the squirrel is unknown." LOL!
