The most likely answer is that your wires are loose where they connect to the utility powerline. Call your electrical utility and have them check it out. I had the same thing happen years ago. In my rural area this is usually caused by wet trees contacting the bare wires (several thousand volts) between tops of the utility poles. When they are wet trees conduct better. During a snowstorm you can watch the flickering sparks as snowy, wet branches touch the lines. The power company tries to trim back the overhanging trees every few years.
