If the heat is brief enough...the snow won't even know what happened.

Ask a chef how they can put ice cream in an oven to make "Baked Alaska".

That looks just like what happened when the secondary flipped over the 13kv primary in front of my house (during Charley)
We just had a bigger "boom".
My buddy decided watching the hurricane was safer in the house ... and he needed to use the bathroom.
