Shaun gave his rant (see – Hurricane Reality Check), so now it’s my turn. I’m going to keep it short and sweet.
Can somebody please tell me why all the power lines are still on poles and not underground? I know it all comes down to money, but aren’t we living in an modern age here? This is freakin’ 2011. I’m not asking for flying cars or teleportation. I just want my freakin’ power lines underground so my lights won’t go out when a branch falls.
I have a relative who came here from Europe. He told me the first thing he noticed about American were all the the utility poles and wires everywhere. He couldn’t believe his eyes!
It’s just ridiculous. I mean, ok, fine, I know the power can still go out with lines underground, but I have to imagine that it would at least cut down on the down time.
That’s what I am worried about most: How long my electric is going to be out when all is said and done.
Party in Freeport this Sunday:
Hey, does anybody know if Long Beach City Manager Charles T. Theofan lives north or south of Sunrise Highway in Freeport? If it’s north, then it’s party at Charles’ house this Sunday! All City of Long Beach residents are invited. (That’s a joke. Please don’t actually go there…)
