I have been working from home all week and I am pretty amazed at what has been taking place in our front yard.
If I wasn't home, I am not sure that I would even know what is happening. But, to try and sum up what is going on, AT&T is installing something in our phone box outside to support their new U-Verse connectivity (fiber optic to the neighborhood).
The AT&T guy started digging yesterday morning and stayed digging until I came back from lunch. When I pulled in the driveway, about 5 guys were standing around staring at the hole he had dug. One of the guys walked over to me and introduced himself as a technician from seacoast water management. He explained that he had been called by AT&T because their digging had broke a water line and I would not have water in the house.
As it turned out, I did have water, and it was my neighbors who were out of luck. Anyway, last night everyone left and seeing as the hole was filled in, I assumed that they fixed everything and were moving on.
This morning I get up and the guy is back digging again. He dug until after lunch time and then left. It is 9pm, so I am assuming he is not coming back. However, he dug a deep hole and just left it open. It is about 5 feet from the road and the hole is at least 4 feet deep. I imagine someone walking at night could easily stumble into it as it is not roped off or anything. Not to mention our yard is a mess.
I am sort of surprised and will probably ask them to re-sod what they have torn up, but you would think they wouldn't just leave a big hole in someone's yard overnight without saying anything (or really even just start digging without saying anything).
