I wish I'd gotten pics of the time some moron (a GUY!) knocked out the power to my apartment complex after delivering a semi-truck load of furniture for someone moving in. He didn`t realize the empty trailer was riding higher than when he pulled in with it loaded and he snagged the power lines over the driveway. It broke TWO power poles completely off at the bottom. I had just put two loads of laundry in the wash about 5 minutes before that when I heard a loud BOOM! and the lights went out. I saw the two broken poles and started swearing like a drunken sailor because I knew it would be hours before the power would be back on. I had to go fish my soaking wet, soapy laundry out of the washers (which were filled to the top with water) and mule it all to a laundromat a mile away to finish it.
