No, they're jacked into my head and spine. Tongue

Newer constructed areas have power, cable and the like underground. Older areas don't and the power company spends millions on tree trimming.

During our last heatwave a transformer just blew...it wasn't hit by anything.

I live in a pocket of newer constructed homes that does have underground, but it's fed from transformers outside our area that are above ground.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Most of our utilities are above ground here, that makes lots of sense for a place that gets many winter storms and can get hurricanes. Drinking Beverage

Oddly, out power doesn't go out very often.

Newer developments tend to have thing underground but fed from above ground.

There's a hubbub in my town regarding this topic, so it has me curious about the 'norm' in other places..

It's cheaper to run power lines overhead than underground, so that's what the majority of utilities companies tend to do.

RE: Are your wires buried underground?
Some are underground and some are above ground. About 6 month ago they went through the neighborhood and buried a bunch of cables. When the guy first came out and spraypainted the roads and sidewalks I happened to be out raking leaves and talked to the guy about all the markings he was sparying. Each color meant a different thing. There was gas and sewer and all sorts of other things. I think he had 6 or 7 different colors he was spraying and a little gadget he was using to find each thing underground. He was a really nice guy.

Anyway, there's a crap load of stuff under there.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
