35 mph winds that followed a week of snow and ice have helped topple a utility pole on Capitol Hill’s 10th Ave E just south of E Blaine. Seattle City Light reports the problem as “tree” on its system status Web site.
CHS could not get close enough to the tilting pole to see exactly what brought the pole down.
UPDATE: CHS couldn’t but Mike Guss could. He sent in some great pictures of the scene — and the tree that laid itself down.
