Put in a ticket and the guy came out this mornin' and put a temporary line as the junction for the drop is across the road. Hopefully it will hold out until a permanent fix can be put in place, likely next week.
So...What'd I miss?
I have a friend in NC and her phone line was cracked open during some construction. The phone company assured her they would be out to fix it quickly, 4 months ago. It's still not fixed.
What you missed?
DC had an earthquake measuring 6.7 on the Richter scale. Six cakes toppled, forty-two sauces were spilled, and fifteen salads were double tossed. The earthquake broke gas lines and fires were started where thirty-two steaks and fifty-five hamburgers were burned beyond recognition. T'was a terrible tragedy.
