Drilling for Electrons

Michelle gave me a little list of things to do this morning, the last of which was drilling holes in the mudroom studs for running wires. With a touch too much enthusiasm I drilled right through the first stud and on through the conduit holding the LIVE wire carrying power to the barn. My error produced a small spark when the drill bit hit the wire but no shock. Perhaps I was grounded by my rubber clogs. So I had to go and confess to the electrician that I'd cut power to her computer. Michelle made a splice, and everyone was back to work in no time.
