Weather can cause problems for underground electrical grids by increasing the probability of serious "manhole events" such as fires and explosions. In this work, we compare a model that incorporates weather features associated with the dates of serious events into a single logistic regression, with a more complex approach that has three interdependent log linear models for weather, baseline manhole vulnerability, and vulnerability of manholes to weather. The latter approach more naturally
