Last weekend my wife and I were meeting her sister and husband at a restaurant to celebrate our 22 wedding anniversary. I dropped my wife off at the door and parked in back of the restaurant. As I was walking to the front door I could hear a buzzing / crackling noise and it sounded like electricity/high voltage noise. I looked up where it was coming from and sure enough there were sparks and it looked like miniature lightning at the rooftop. It was coming off the sign on top of the building. Long story short I got the manager out there. You should have seen him run for the electrical box to cut the power!! He was very thankful and bought our drinks and picked up the appetizers for the night too. He was smiling at me the whole time we were there. Kind of cool. About 250 people in the place at the time. That could have gotten ugly if a fire had broken out.
