Wow, I'm only a few blocks away and am greatful not to have lost power. When the pole was hit my lamp flickered and my smartphone got staticey at the same moment which confused me since it wasn't plugged in. My TV never flickered at all ...maybe cuz we're on an antenna but it is plugged in which also confused me.
