The cable people showed up just after 8:00am this morning to bury the cable that they installed last February. (In fact, they ripped out that cable, installed a new one, and buried that instead.)
The cable-burier is small, but loud. I imagine the neighbors weren’t very happy with us. But at least the cable is out of sight, for the first time in seven months.
(A rather substantial tree root was severed during this project, and is now sticking straight up out of the ground near the back fence. I hope it didn’t hurt the tree very much.)
