Now that we have the all-important power pole at the front of the property, we must run the line down to the dome, of course. Todd & Bob discovered that the power was not actually working during this process. A jumper must have been blown down or something during the weekend's storm. (We are figuring that power outages will be a regular feature of rural life once we get out there, and have already made plans for a backup generator, just in case you were wondering.)
Anyway, Bob called the power company to report the outage & get someone out to fix it. He was laughing when he got off the phone. When he gave them the location, the power company guy said, Oh yeah, that's the new pole we just put in for the grain silo.
