If your pole looks like this.......
ya may need to get it fixed! That thing was leaning so bad the if a bird landed on the line to the house I think it would have snapped! So we called the electric people and the first man came and said,"Yep, your pole's leaning." He said he would send someone else to look at it and write up a work order. The second man shows up the next day and says,"Yep, your pole's leaning." He ties an orange plastic tie on it and says someone will call me on Monday. They called and said they would be out first thing Tuesday.
Sure enough ,first thing Tuesday morning a whole convoy of trucks show up at 8 o'clock sharp!
We did not get a new pole,those were for the next job.
They pulled up the old and might I add disturbingly short, anchor and drilled a new, deep, big anchor for our leaning pole.
Then that truck left and in came the bucket truck to attach the new cable...
Then they tightened up the new cable.The pole is not completely straight but it has plenty of slack now on the line to the house. I hope the new anchor holds. It is this dirt we have, black gumbo.When we are in drought, like we usually are every summer it seems, it shrinks until it has huge cracks in it...you can pull up cemented fence post if you wanted too! Then in the winter it is slick as owl poop and clings to your boots like lead weights. So now the pole is fixed...on to the next thing to worry about,lol!
Oh ! Here is a picture of one of Hubby's deranged dogs,Pork of Pork and Beans, absolutely begging to bite something.We had to chain them up since this was all going on in their yard. Poor Pork, he so badly wanted to bite a truck, loud engines enrage him! He once tried to bite a chain saw...would have ended badly for him I am sure! "Please Mom, can I bite just one truck or man...just one bite ...please..there are so many...."
Of course I had to say no....but I assured him he could bite any burglars that came into the yard or creepy monster like figures toting chainsaws!
