Totally Wired

The homeowners in my little area (6th Avenue and Hugo) agreed to tax themselves so that the utility wires could go underground. The whole process has taken about two years, and was completed when the utility poles were pulled up a few months ago.

I miss those old wooden poles covered in staples from decades of fliers advertising garage sales and political rallies. I miss looking down from my front window at the lattice of wires connecting my building to houses across the street.

Old utility poles and wires are becoming quaint. Lets save our money and leave them in place.
