Default SOWUVDB cord.

Check this out. The building engineer and in house electricians at this government funded health care facility found a new UV and direct burial SO cord.

The cord comes out of a window on the second floor and runs across this roof.



From there it flies over to here.



Then down the outside wall and underground then back up and in.



To this safety switch. Outstanding use of my tax dollars!

Ugh, another fine example of govt waste. Just look at that 3/4 pipe strap and tapcon, absolutely unnecessary.

I thought you were looking for some SOWUVDB. The cable more commonly known as "mining cable" is normally similarly rated. What you have pictured is more of an abortion.

Judging by the bait box in the 3rd pic, this cord must not be rodent-resistant. It that a stick of rat poison lying on the ground?

I am also curious about that strangely positioned luminaire back between the trees.
