Only if I could've had a look at the point everything was
grounded to and
the connections to each rod. If it was poorly maintained
and full of
corrosion, yes, I would've learned the importance of
regularly checking and
maintaining ground connections. A broken connection in just
the right place
could've caused an arc near some combustible mtl.
