electricity jumped no one would be able to work on the lines. -- Scott 

I dunno - what's this "arcing" they're warning us about then?

It is real isn't it?

It just occurred to me that the property next to my house has been hit by 
lightning 5
I don't really want to get distracted by a discussion about lightning, but 
I'm pretty sure
the old gal who owned the place never touched anything.

I won't believe you if you say it isn't but maybe you could ask your dad - 
the former
power company guy - to help clarify that.

Anyway, please ask about that - and tell him thanks for the info.
