And yup, the power company arrives to extend my gas line from across the road and connect it to my house. I was still plodding around in my jammies and slippers when the door bell rang but I was excited to see them.
Five different vehicles arrived to do the work so it has been an entertaining day to say the least. I course was concerned that the ground was to frozen, but I needed have worried.
They brought big equipment to dig the holes required at the street and the house foundation provided enough warmth to heat the ground at the new meter site.
The big equipment tamped down the frozen earth. It was a house shaking process.
When they were done this is what the previously dug hole looked like. It is amazing. In the spring the grass will resume growing in this spot without any assistance from me. I love when a plan comes together.
