This is more common in some areas of the country than other areas. Shooters will take potshots at microwave towers, cables of all types on utility poles, and even the occasional electrical transformer. The shot itself may not cause an immediate outage, but the hole lets rain in causing an outage later. They also shoot stop signs, mailboxes and just about everything else.
