Power knocked out on Greenwood by unfortunate crow

Per the Seattle times: “Nearly 3,000 Seattle City Light customers lost power early Friday, likely due to a crow touching two wires with his wingspan and causing a surge, according to a spokeswoman for the utility company.

The lights went out about 6:35 a.m. for customers west of Green Lake between North 60th Street to North 74th Street, and along Evanston Avenue North from North 83rd Street to North 105th Street, according to Seattle City Light’s outage map.”

Spokeswoman Julie Moore said power was restored by 8 a.m. The fate of the crow is unknown, but we fear the worst.
