How long has the utility pole outside our house in the South Natick part of town been a double pole? “Years,” is the best we could come up with.
Why was it there? Who can remember…maybe a winter storm back when there were winter storms around here.
But Eversource, which last year dug up the streets for gas line repairs without warning to most neighbors, showed up out of the blue today with its fancy trucks. Within an hour or so it had yanked that sucker out of the ground after the crew loosened it with their manual tools.
That pole was dancing in mid-air.
This follows last week’s excitement when the town of Natick removed a giant stump across the street that had also been there for “years.”
The neighborhood’s going up, as my wife likes to say.
As for those of you along South Main Street, well, maybe there’s hope.
