The company I work for makes those cables. There is a huge saftey strain factor built in for ice, wind, etc..or occasionally holding up the pole that is supposed to be hold the cable up ;D

Video of our recent snow storm. The first 20 seconds talk about it, then they highlight a video of some
tree branches on a live line that catch fire at about the :25 mark. Seemed cool to watch, from a distance.
The rest is news...

Ugh.  More "excitement" at work today.  Police blocked off a small section of Northlake Way underneath the Ship Canal Bridge about a block from work.  I saw some tarps and what may have been a meat wagon.  Rumor has it someone jumped.  I don't know the bridge to road height, at least 10 stories where we are.  Hopefully that's not what it was.

That's roughly 180 degrees on the other side of the building from where the truck took out the pole yesterday. :-\
