TUESDAY 31 January
Looking back on the last two (2) weeks, it had been an amusing, confusing, slightly sad, but exciting and gratifying time. The electrical service work for the barn (with upgraded power for the house) was done. The crews had all been very professional and had done the work well. But they were also friendly and helpful, as they put up with my presence, questions, and photography with good humor.
The only question that remained, power wise, was when a crew would show up to change out the pole in the SE corner of our yard. This pole does not have a transformer on it, but it does have the tap for our Comcast/Xfinity broadband cable to the house. It supports the electric distribution wires that run E-W down our side of the street, along with the AT&T and Comcast cables. These lines also T-off and go across the street to a pole in our neighbor’s yard to supply services to their house. It does not have a transformer on it, but it looked to me like the T would make installing a new pole tricky. I guess I will find out just how it’s done when someone shows up and does it, assuming I am at home when the work happens. Never once have we been contacted in advance to let us know that a crew was scheduled to be onsite.
