“If it’s not one thing, it’s another.”

Reports indicate that electric utility crews in Decatur, Indiana were digging a hole to plant a pole to replace one broken by Sunday’s storm when … they hit a 4-inch gas main.

According to this report from WANE-TV, the gas leak forced Decatur officials to close U.S. 27 (the city’s main thoroughfare) and evacuate about 50 homes.

As if storm damage and power outages weren’t enough!
