Undergound Power…. Underground Pipe

Blue Ridge Power came out today to bury the main power line to our house- that will eliminate having the power ripped from the side of the house as it was in early August.

However, even though all the utilities came out and marked their buried lines, there was one that wasn’t marked…. and guess what- we found it… Not only found it- but broke it as well. We have no idea what it’s for- it’s a water pipe thats not under pressure- and isn’t the sewer pipe. Blue Ridge Water came out and told the crew to leave that part uncovered- and they would return at some point to determine what it is, and get it fixed. Hopefully they fill in the rest of the dirt as well..

Clean up…

Over the last few days several different crews have come out to the neighborhood to clean up after Saturday evenings storm.

The county came out and cleaned up trees that were still in the roadway… (while they were here, Jan asked if they could use their equipment to scoop the leaves out of our front ditch- and happily, they did! Yea!)

Blue Ridge Electric finished clearing the tree off our power line…

They also rewired our outdoor light- without that light- it sure gets dark out here!

We still need to have an electrician permanently fix the connection to the house- (we are checking into getting the power line buried so we don’t have to worry about the trees) We also need to get a tree service to come out and cut up the downed trees in our lot. It’s too big of a job for Jan and I. And we need to get the vinyl siding folks out here to fix the gaping hole left in our siding where the power was originally attached to the house.
