Can we all just agree that the whole pole needs to be restrung?
That's horrible!

Agreed, but Verizon and whoever happens to be on that pole are pretty unlikely to do that unless pushed. The NY Public Service Commission might find the state of what's on that pole interesting, particularly with supporting documentation (trouble history, pole number/location, etc).

What? That's totally legit. Look! There's even bubble wrap there for

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.
