For a while we have had a customer with some lines which go down every time it rains. We put in the trouble ticket, a
couple of days later Verizon says the issue is resolved...until the next time it rains.
The customer sent us some pictures today of the pole outside their office. The repair appears to be wrapping some
plastic bags around something up on the pole. Here is link to the pictures the customer sent us, in case anyone in the
mood for a good scare.
If I didn't see the loops of electrical tape holding the whole works
together I'd say that was a squirrel nest.
The two aerial runs that appear to be using each other to turn a corner
(right above the plastic-and-electrical-tape mess in the top picture) is
an especially nice and creative touch. I sincerely hope the smaller of
the two aerials is not a lashing wire.
