Here's another broken lightning arrester--this time an expulsion type.

I wonder how many "firearm discharge" calls are generated by failed lightning arresters anyhow?

I do wonder....or perhaps they blend in with the thunder during a storm? I have yet to personally witness one of these explusion arresters breaking up, but by the looks of them I wouldn't be surprised if it was pretty violent.
