Can you guess what this is?

Guess What this Is

Lets give you the rest of the story first.
The board and the Man
One week ago, Monday May 15, 2006 - 08:41:02 am - In the back yard I present a man from Dominion Power working on the big green board. This man and the man in the picture below showed up to pull the cables between the box and the board. Supposedly for street lights and sprinklers! Yea. Progress!
The box and the Man
In the front yard, the man working behind the big green box with the other end of the cable, yes he is there somewhere.

Dirt Out, Dirt In

See here he is putting dirt back inside the holes. Great idea don't you think? They worked fast and were done within an hour.

Thursday, May 18, after lunch.

Day two, New Man at the Board

This really nice man showed up to actually connect the wiring. Eric fhad inally stopped someone from the construction company on Tuesday or Wednesday and said, you know the cable for this board is in. The nice place man said, sorry, no one told me the wire was here.
Clean up crew

On Friday, May 20th I came home and the land crew, Horizon men, were preparing the area for sod. These are the same guys who were hauling wood in other pictures I took. Little guys with big toys, shovels and nice red shirts.

Ready for Grass Again

See what a nice job they did? The dirt is fairly smooth, all ready for sod.

And oh yes, the board is working and we now have street lights on both sides of the street near our house. But, contrary to what we were told, this board has nothing to do with sprinklers. Of course, even if it did, our's wouldn't be working right - yep, that first picture isn't wiring, it's one of our sprinker heads - beheaded, thanks to the little guys in red.

This week our major objective is OPERATIONAL SPRINKLERS!

Okay, I wouldn't have guessed it was a decapitated sprinkler. Wow. I hope they get it all sorted out soon!
