I am pretty much retired but I still go in to do the service changes. This is from a couple weeks ago. The tree had wrapped up the drop so bad that it pulled the RMC mast and broke the hub where it attached to the meter socket.

Not great pics. I just want to get out and go home these days. :jester:

The service is behind the shrub/vine/tree on the left



Relocated and backfed all the circuits up thru the attic/crawl space with romex.

Uh oh!

Panels were installed on wrong side of the wall. WOOPS!







I'll never get used to seeing that. :laughing: Just out in the open for strangers or burglars or angry neighbors to just turn circuits off.

Another FPE split-bus panel with a delta breaker.

I see those once in a while around here too; pretty rare though.

Eff that. I'm not one of those guys.

I'm reverting back to my teenaged years. I often sleep until 9 and then spend the whole day playing softball, drums or just doing a whole lot of nothing.

I like the softball part, but who plays with you?

I try to work 4 hours a day... 10:00 to 2:00 is the shift I like.
I like that :thumbup: I spent decades on the dawn to dusk shift.

If I want to play during the day, there is a group of about 50-75 geezers that get together on Tuesday and Fridays. They split into old guys/really old guy groups (many of these guys are 70+), choose teams and play a couple games.

There are also a few groups of guys that do batting practice during the week.

In the evening I get out a couple times a week with the youngsters for double headers.

Looks like that Fire Prone Equipment panel on the left lived up to its name
Operator error. Not me, but someone had an oh **** moment. :jester:
