Holly Pulling Power Pole
After the electric company got done moving our power the other week from the overhead poles to the underground installation they uprooted the power pole and left it along the side of the road for us to have. When the poles are in the ground I didn’t really realize how long they are. Pulling it up the driveway, the winding road we have, proved an interesting trick. Holly dragged it very slowly while Will, Ben and I used pinch bars to roll the butt end around the curves.
Running down the length of the power pole is a heavy copper wire, the grounding wire, which attaches to the copper pad you can see there on the base of the pole. Somewhere across the road is a grounding rod too. I’m going to hunt for it. They’re expensive.
So now I have a power pole. One of my life’s ambition’s fulfilled. What I’ll do is anyone’s guess. Ideas?
