Seconded. Any time something blows up without hurting anyone, that's a very good thing.

I liked the transformer myself.

The film from the Eldorado substation near Boulder City was linked before I recall, but not full of films and info pages like this. Nice collection, ty! :)

The picture by the Australian photographer is insane --- you can see the lighting arcing around where they were standing. Exceptionally lucky to be alive.
