Being a retired public utilities worker, that spider web of overhead lines is amazing to me. Looks like something would get fried. ec
mreddie, have you ever been to the Dominican Republic? Makes that spider's web seem close to perfect. In that country, the power is not metered, no permits, no one to come out and hook it all up. SO--its every man for himself. Climb a ladder, find a wire, connnect it somehow, drape it somewhere.....scary!!
I wrote a long comment here, but then it didn't post. I have now been awake for...well, a long time... and I have no energy to repost.(Posting from the New York Airport) I will sum up with, yes, they also have "do it yourselfers" and yes, we have electrical fires so often that it is not a surprise when a power pole is its own torch.
SO..Miss C, New York now, eh? On your way to "home", then....which, I imagine after being where you've been for as long as you've been, things will be at the same time wonderfully welcome and familiar, and strangely foreign. May your time with family and dear friends be rich and rewarding for all concerned. Be restored and refreshed, and re-filled even as you empty yourself of the riches you've gained this past while. But first, once you've "arrived"....get some rest and get back on local time!!
nick jesch: Yes, I was in New York...for about 5 and a half hours. Everything is so very large here in the U.S. And it is true that this world becomes less familiar as the other world becomes more familiar. It is an interesting balancing act to be between the two somehow. I am already adjusting to the time difference (at least in Nashville), because of when I got in and how long I had been up. I think we clocked it at 27 hours or something like that. Blessings!
