Usually attic work SUCKS but being able to stand up and no insulation almost makes it too easy!
I was actually liking working up there

What, no swamp cooler?
I was surprised that I didn't see a sign of one.

Was the original meter really high or is the new one really low?
I see a lot of old ones up high. Now it's 4' to 6' 3". I put it at the new standard height in case they ever want to go underground, all we have to do is flip the bus around and dig.

Is it romex to the j-box and individual conductors to the panel?
They let us use romex here. It's not normally subject to dampness or wetness

So when was Phoenix settled by people anyway?
Wiki say the town of Phoenix was settled in 1867 . Most of the growth came after WWII

Why the can anyway? didn't want to wrestle with an LB?
I actually had an LB on my truck/in my hand and was going to use it but I didn't have a 2" PVC male adapter or anything else to fill the small gap into the building.

I put down some planking throughout to walk on, stripped out all the old wiring and cut a bunch of holes for switches and receps etc. Unbelievably simple with all the headroom.

1933? That's practically brand new in these parts! The house I grew up in was built in 1790 and the Victorian I am writing this from right now was built in 1892. Heck, my Grandfather (who still lives) is older than that house by 11 years!
