A Duke Energy transformer exploded above Spring Garden Street at Mendenhall on Monday evening. By 9 p.m., the fire department had arrived, and a police officer was beginning to block traffic on Spring Garden. For whatever reason, the power remained on throughout the neighborhood (as of 9 p.m., at least). The tree on fire, the rain, the red and blue lights and at least three loud bangs from the transformer made for a pretty gaudy scene.

Isn’t There Anything to Do Around Here?
Well, yes, actually. The Local Events page provides links to major events, major venues, university event calendars and Greensboro’s busy local arts scene (much of which happens downtown).
