    The sparking stayed or went away when the breakers were turned off?The sparking STAYED when I
    switched the breakers off. Must be the power lines feeding off some kind of metal siding on the
    house.

    Did you do the breaker test yet? What were the results of turning off the main and the
    individual breakers?Yes I did try this. Everything seems to be fine on that end.

    Yes, good read regarding BPA's regulations and services. They even come out and investigate and
    even ground the problem! Too bad they are in Oregon and I am in Tennessee. TVA (my local

    Who's power lines are these? If they are the TVA's I'd call them and explain your situation and
    I bet they would come out and see whats going on for free.Funny you suggest this. I did call

    zero effect on the tv. It would just stop the arcing at that location. If our assumptions are
    correct its not really anything that can hurt you. Dry gardening gloves would even be fine. We
    could be wr...

    Personally, I would screw a jumper wire between the two and solder the screws for a solid,
    permanent contact. The arcing, if not stopped, could be a fire hazard if something burnable got
    in there.Than...

    Thank you for jumping in. I have tried the breaker trick - meaning that I have shut off the
    main. No dice. We do have a flood light approximately 10 or 12 feet to the right of the spark
    on the corner ...

    Thank you for the suggestions! I will try anything at this point. I just don't want my house to
    catch a far!
