More digging!

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 9:04 am


The main electrical wire is buried in conduit in a deep trench, then covered with a required yellow WARNING tape and sand.  It seems the hope is that one day when someone decides to dig a big hole on the property, they will uncover the warning tape before cutting through the electrical wire.  Very clever.

 We forgot to ask the excavator to dig the trench for the phone line, so that has to be done by hand — with a pick and shovel, through the filled and compacted surface of the driveway.  Good exercise for Gerda.
