Temporary Fix + It Works = Permanent Fix

What's the bubble-wrap for? Protection in case of bird collision?

Looks like they borrowed from Qwest's repair manual. We have a lot of
pedestals around the city that are covered in Hefty bags. Granted, we're in
Phoenix, and there isn't much here that is prepared for rain since we don't
get a lot of it.

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.
