Last month Bill from Bill's Ponderings who lives in Brisbane posted on yet another case of fried possum and an electricity outage as a result. Apparently the possums climb up the power poles onto the lines and short them. They will do that with monotonous regularity if they are not prevented. In New Zealand when I first came I couldn't understand why every - and I mean every - pole had an aluminium or alloy sleeve. It is to make it impossible for possums to climb them. It's such a simple thing but 100% effective.
