Re: Troopers are also reporting similar power pole fires!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Power outages sweeping across Central Texas
The article states that they believe the cause of the pole fires are "dust buildup and a low lying fog". I understand the principles of how this could be causing a shorting out, resulting in fires. But, all this at one time. Come on!!!

This is from the dust and other contaminants collecting on the insulators. When the fog came, it was just enough moisture to cause the contaminants to collect. Over time, this build up causes the insulator to fail. When it fails, the distance from the Energized line to ground is shortened and it literally ionizes the air, and grounds. ELECTRICITY ONLY WANTS TO GOTO GROUND. It's called corona and I am the largest distributor of $100k cameras used to detect this

Dust buildup, Fog ? Hey, this is Texas ! Dust is a way of life here and fog happens on a regular basis. We have had 8 months of drought where I live AND fog on a regular basis, and no fires or power outages reported. Seems strange that it is mostly Oncor grids being affected, but just wait - I'm sure a "Mr Smith" will show up saying it was swamp gas, ball lightening or Venus !

Eugene, Woodoo is absolutely right insulators, lighting arrestors, regulators, capacitor banks, autos, xfrms, cutouts, fuses, potheads, arcwhippers, etc.... fail all the time.

well it sounded made up. I gather what i said was now in retrospect rude, and im sorry. Theres just so many people that try and make stuff up to sound important, and thats exactly how it sounded, just tired of disinfo. sorry again, was pretty rude - also im not a pothead, i am sober lifestyle and b.s. science

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29042639


The Sun is very quiet in X-Ray output at present,around the B1(ish)level for a while [link to www.swpc.noaa.gov] No Flaring of significant strength for over a Week.

We are not experiencing a Geomagnetic Storm nor are we expecting one any time in the next 24 Hours so it is hard to try and pin this one on the Sun,less' someone can find something very Esoteric that I have missed.

It is quite strange though anyhow,regardless of it being dust related or not.

water does not conduct electricity.
impurities in water conducts electricity.
you could stand in a bucket of distilled water, put jumper cables in both sides, attach it to a car battery, and you won't get shocked.
electricity is the movement of electrons.
water is a perfect molecule. no extra electrons to bump off, no voids to fill.

You'd need a pulse of high energy akin to EMP as a little Radiation wouldn't do that to Electricity Pylons less' it was a massive event.

Not saying our Sun and potentially our own upper Atmospheres(Plasmaspheres etc.)couldn't do this just so far I haven't seen any mention of anything from anyone like Ham Radio/Radio Tards of any out of place signals or the like.

It is still strange and could yet be something other than what has been mentioned Above.
