Power Surges

I used to wonder about power surges having never seen one. Now I know. The other day I was at a customers house and while I had my meter hooked up caught a sustained 450 volts. Woah! Normal voltage around here used to be 242v. I now understand why electrical appliances(including A/C equipment burns up).

Don't blame the electric coop I guess, but I am truly curious.
