The switch-thingie on the power pole just outside the employees' entrance. It was broken, it was raining, and it was snapcracklepopping like crazy from the water dripping inside. The power company people said that it could have exploded at any time -- damaging the pole and the Library building, the Library's contents and computers, and incidentally my car. It also would have shut off power to about half the Old Town area.
Speaking of explosives, the cops arrested a guy yesterday who violated his probation by bringing an explosive device (CO2 cylinder filled with gunpowder and fused) on his visit to his probation officer.
Probably the brother of the guy who walked up the the West Entrance this morning, read the sign the we were closed for electrical repairs, and then walked around and tried to get in the East Entrance. You know, just because the place is closed on ONE side....
