Beautiful sunny day, and I took advantage of it for an early afternoon ramble. I found a power-pole festooned with lines and a light and maybe that’s a transformer, too. That’s not the simple one to three lines passing straight by that I remember from The Old Days.
Then, around the corner, I found another pole, with fewer accessories on top, and a Man on a Ladder—not a mechanized ladder, just the regular painter-carpenter kind—checking out the lowest level of technologies. I think his work is related to the coming fiber-delivered communication options we keep hearing about (foot-tapping impatience…).
