Fixing a Pole

On Saturday evening, Lisa and were out for a walk and noticed that the damaged power pole on Main Street had been replaced.

Fixing a Pole

Lisa noticed that they also put new metal crossbeams on the new pole that replaced the one that cracked and nearly dropped the line across Main Street (to the right in this picture) a few days earlier.

Despite the fact that this line seems to be part of the feed to our house (the line running to the left then turns another corner and runs down Front Street), we did not experience any power outages of which we are aware. And I would have noticed, I think, as the UPS on the computer stack would have started sounding an alarm and my CPAP machine would have stopped working should the power have gone out overnight.
