The County decided to clean up the other side of the road I live on with a bulldoser. Lost Phone and internet last Thursday, AT&T came out today Monday and twisted some wires together to get us working.

Looks like they had quite a bit of twisting to do! Glad you got it restored.

I looked at those pics and had Adam from Mythbuster's voice in my head saying "Well, there's your problem..."

Good to hear your back up now!! Sorry but I could not help but laugh a little. Years ago when I lived about 10 miles north of where I am now.
The County came out through the county and put up (911 signs at very home) well I had a steep hill in front of the house and they put up the post right in the middle of it.
Made it risky mowing around it, so I decided to move it. I had to drive around the phone tower at the edge of the drive(just like yours so I decided to put it next to that.

Three days later I was out in the garden working and a deputy sherrif came up the drive. He said they had had a constant alarm on the 911 board and wanted to know if everything was alright. It was kind of nice to know they keep track of those things and check up on people.
Seems wh en I reset the post I clipped the phone line?

Glad they finally took the time to hook you back up. That's one thing about bulldozers, they don't care what out front. They'll take it all out!

One of the guys I work with on occasion lives in a trailer park. The tenants get drunk and run over the phone boxes so much that the phone company has just wrapped the messed up ones in plastic bags.

Glad you are back out of the stone age.
