National Grid Truck Bingo – Video Edition

Welcome to the first edition of National Grid truck bingo containing video! It’s been a long time coming. Earlier this week there was massive power outage at the nations 6th largest mall, Destiny USA.

Cruising by the mall late in the day I noticed a boom poking into the sky so I stopped by for a closer inspection.

Also on scene were a two large portable generators. One from Cat and one from Cummins. I felt the C logo cut vents added a nice touch.

No word on what the problem was but I have a feeling National Grid won’t be able to chalk this one up to a squirrel chewing through some wires.
