Are they on poles with electrical wires on em or are they underground fed?  I've got about 40 dead underground poles here in my community from underground faults.  So far about 4 cobra heads out of over 200 are actual failures.  We've gotten down into the 20s (20-F) but surprisingly I haven't seen any cold weather failures other than possibly 1.

And two LEDs are dead already, Time to report them to Xcel.

A few days ago I saw one of those hideous new AEL fixtures on the freeway dim and strobing madly.

Well, i'm sad to report that having watched Eluko79's new video, the truss-arms at the MN-5/I-35E interchange are no more  Cry. Unfortunately, that means that the only still-functioning original 1960s truss-arm freeway lighting (to my knowledge) is at the Huron Avenue on/off ramp on I-94 in Minneapolis.
