"Anybody hungry?" asked Adams County Electric Cooperative lineman Randy Hoover after removing the slightly blackened frankfurter from the 7,200-volt demonstration power line set up outside a warehouse at Letterkenny Army Depot. What the electricity did to the hot dog essentially is what happens to a human being when they come in contact with a power line, said Marvin E. Snyder, a line supervisor for Adams Electric.
