Default Crispy critter temporarily outs power for 5K in Hamilton County

CINCINNATI -- About 5,000 Duke Energy customers temporarily lost power
Monday morning and the cause of the outage had very little to do with
the weather.

Instead, a Duke spokesperson said customers in parts of Colerain
Township, Forest Park and Symmes Township in Hamilton County could
blame one crispy critter for the inconvenience.

A squirrel entered a power substation, ostensibly looking for warmth
and shelter, and got zapped, the utility company said.

The rodentís demise triggered the large outage that hit before noon.

After the noon hour, more than 4,000 customers were still without
power as Duke worked to restore service. Power was returned to each
area before 3 p.m.

Why isn't a power substation squirrel proof? Blaming the squirrel is
just passing the buck.

I spend too much time on Usenet now, so I'll pass. Sorry if
my trim was inappropriate.
