This afternoon a severe storm moved through Gallatin County.  It produced high winds, heavy rains and hail.  The storm took down trees, power lines and tore roof off buildings here in the county.  Workers were out in the storm trying to clear trees so the buses could get through, to get children their homes.  If anyone has ever told you to stay away from downed power line, this video is a good example why.  After a tree limb had broken the line, the current carried through the asphalt, completing the circuit, back on the other side of the broken line.  It was around 15 feet where it passed through the asphalt.  It arced down around 18-20 inches into the asphalt.  Residences never lost power because the line never grounded enough to trip the breakers on the poles.
