Everything was going great on this project until now. Yesterday was four weeks that we have been waiting for power. Monday a bucket truck pulled up. The guy got out and walked over to the meter box. On the way back I met him and told him how happy I was to see him. He told me there is no wire.

So now I'm looking at him like duh. I told him I was told by the guy who did the estimate that Duke Power would supply the wire. He said no, A subcontractor (supplied by the power company) digs the ditch and supplies the wire. Now I'm looking at him and thinking, then what are you doing here?

So he leaves. Rose calls the guy who gave us the estimate 4 months ago (keep in mind we already paid to have the power hooked up). He told her the ditch digger would be here either Friday (yesterday) or Monday. So lets see, so far we have had 4 guys show up and no power yet.

1. The power company estimator.
2. The guy who marks existing underground wires.
3. Another guy who marked where the new wire will go.
4. And the guy in the bucket truck. Nice guy by the way.

Now 2 more people need to come before we get power. And the final code inspection.

About a month ago we upholstered two chairs for Chuck Clemons, our State House Representative. Duke Power is a regulated company. Chuck told me if there is ever anything he can do just give him a call and he gave me his card. If the ditch digger does not show up Monday would I be out of line to see if Chuck can help? Or do I just need to be patient?

I like the prayer, "Dear God, please give me patience. And hurry up about it!)

I don't think your state rep is going to be of any help.

If this is your first problem, that in itself is something to be grateful for. It doesn't get the electricity turned on, but it may help your blood pressure stay down, at least to a manageable level.

Here's something you probably do not want to do. If, however, you do, make sure Rose gets a video of it.

I've enjoyed reading about the progress on your shop.

It wouldn't hurt to give ole Chuckie a call. Maybe he can get you moved up the list a little.

One of my regular customers was our mayor for many years. When I had problems, I could call her, and someone would be at my shop faster than you could cuss a cat.

Reminds me of the joke about the 2 city workers in a truck. One guy would get out and dig a hole, and 10 minutes later the other guy would get out and cover the hole up. They continued doing this every 50 feet for several miles.

A man observing all this asked them why. One of them replied "Well, we're normally a 3 man crew......the guy that plants the trees is sick today".
