The linesmen are in the basket of the cherry picker getting ready for the fift.
The offending item is removed by the Energex technicians.
And a new steel cross bar is installed. This one should last a few years. As they promised, power was restored within the hour. I closed my book (for a read tonight in bed). Happily turned on my iMac and my MacBook and returned to my overseas newspapers.
All's well again in the street.
