After installing my 20 KW Kohler whole house back-up genset, a huge oak tree about 1/4 mile from my house uprooted, snapping off a 60' pole and pulling the cross arms from the poles on either side. The poles support a 32KV T line and the local service line beneath. The whole area was down for about 23 hours.
I was the only house around with power. After determining what the problem was and when power would be restored, I shut my genset down when I retired for the evening.
