Do you know what this is in my backyard?
It’s a trailer with a collapsed tower on it.
Not just any collapsed tower but a 75 foot collapsed tower.
And not just any 75 foot collapsed tower but *MY* 75 foot collapsed tower.
You remember my beloved blight on the landscape right?
The blight that brought me my internet?
The blight that those #(%)#&%s from my ISP snuck in and stole in the dark of the night after 6 weeks of trying, much to God’s displeasure?
Ok, so it was 10am. But still. God *was* displeased. They had told me on Jan 20, 11 that my tower could be better used elsewhere and that they would be taking it and replacing it with a monopole (which doesn’t get as good a signal because it’s 25 feet shorter).
But then God intervened.
It snowed many inches the night before their first attempt
Their next attempt was brought low by 40MPH winds
The third try, weeks later, brought yet another occurrence of those 40MPH winds.
They finally succeeded in March, on the 4th try, and gave me an excuse to make a bunch of pole raising jokes to ease the pain of slower internet speeds.
And now, nearly a year later, they have brought my blight back to me!
Apparently it didn’t work out well where it had been.
Then it fell over.
FINALLY my ISP saw the omens & portents for what they were and have acted accordingly.
The tower is here in my yard.
But it’s on the trailer. It’s been on the trailer since Monday.
Much like their taking of the tower a year ago, the time line I have been given for it’s return is – “soon”
Possibly Saturday. Or you know, March, like last time.
They are withholding key equipment or I’d put the damn thing up myself.
