about 10 or so in the morning, as i was happily working away in my office, our internet connection ceased to exist. being that i am the network administrator, responsible for a few servers and about 50 users who rely heavily upon email and internet-based ordering systems, this is a Very Bad Thing. upon further inspection, i discover that our phone service (and therefore fax) is also inoperable. so what’s going on? the weather is nice… no rain or lightning to cause outages… what could it be?
a semi truck, that’s what.
apparently, this guy tried to pull alongside our building and the cable that carries our telecom services snagged on his trailer. he kept driving and ripped the cable off of the pole. as you can see, jay was not happy about this.
i stepped back inside and decided to take a peek in our server closet, where all the telecom schmegma comes into the building. what do i find? i find our box darn near ripped out of the wall!
this following the bursted water mane and sink hole in our parking lot about a week prior was nothing short of amazing. see the rest of the pictures here.
