OK Electrical guys.... ? for ya..

They came to fix my power today.. and nothing got done.
I called them when i got home to see what happened and they said that because the wires going into my house are underground that it is my problem.
And i mentioned that they are the wires going into the meter and they said it doesnt matter.. everything from the point where it goes underground to my house is my problem????

WTF?

there is a transformer in my back yard that goes to several houses? all underground so the feed from the pole is also underground?

anywho.. they are coming out to do a temp over ground bypass thing..

they say it will cost a minimum of $230 .. which i am close to the transformer so it shouldnt be to bad.. but what the ??


anyone know what kinda I have gotten into?

Well, if there's a problem with the voltometron then you'll have to have a licensed Texas Spectral Engineer come out to survey your anglical plane.

hey we fixed it.. kinda..

one of the breakers melted up on the inside.. so... this is what makes my house work now..

one breaker that used to be tied together.. burned up 1/2 way...

and when you flip it one way 1/2 this house came on.. flip it the other way and the other 1/2 did (it snapped inside and was reverse..)

so i cut the tie.. and flipped one off and one on... !!!

i gotta go get a new breaker tomorrow.. but it works for now
