Wire on a pole.

_DSC1052-EditVisited the site earlier in the week and were a bit surprised to see both guidelines and wire on our precious utility poles.

We’ve since found out that it’s a Fairpoint telephone line. (Their call later that week asking if we’d like to start our phone service now was adorable.)

As to the other lines we need — not so much. Our latest theory for Central Maine Power is that they’re waiting for May Day. We’ll have a large and glorious parade down Lower Mast Landing — orange trucks as far as the eye can see — followed by the ceremonial hooking up of the power lines with the pronouncement “Let Industry begin, comrade! Rejoice!” It’ll be spectacular.

And Comcast? We shudder to imagine what that particular circle of hell will bring us…
