        That is also a problem with fences. Sometimes I look out my office window and see my fences doing the same thing. They think I don't know what shenanigans they get up to.

              In Holland they've only got 2 wire power distribution. Hence where the phrase "double dutch" came from. True story

                No bouncing wires but the new power line uses steel poles, 4 winters ago we had an ice storm and it shorted across the insulators. I live 1\4 mile away and you could hear the buzz from the arc inside the house, they would last from 3 seconds to 15 seconds. It must have happened 15 times or more.

                  That's the power company melting the ice on the insulators.

                      I figured the lines in the original video must be from California, but your fences are not...... apparently it is widespread as an issue...!!
