Hot Enough for You? If You're an Inanimate Hunk of Metal, the Answer Is Yes

Ah, this explains traffic tie-up in Reston. Sunrise Valley and Reston Pkwy.jpeg
Courtesy of the Twitter machine, this shocking photo shows just how hot it is: hot enough to set metal ablaze. This transformer fire at the corner of Reston Parkway and Sunrise Valley Drive kept things interesting for a while this afternoon. All in all, maybe it's time to give the more temperate climes of the Reston of the North a try, the end.


  1. Yup. Took out the power at USGS headquarters. I think this transformer is in a 'better place' now...

  2. It's just a robot in disguise. Personally I'm rather disappointed that Shia LaBeouf didn't make an appearance to assess the situation and subsequently freak out.

  3. Did RA approve this piece of performance art?
