Wordless Wednesday (Leaning Pole)

Every day when we're driving we see this leaning pole.  I called it in over two weeks ago, & they
haven't come out to fix it, so it must be hard to fix or no big deal?  At least it's leaning away from the road.

Yikes - I guess it's not a big deal since they're taking their sweet time.

Holy Cow... that is leaning so far it is almost down. Maybe they are waiting for better weather.

Brandi Yee said...

Yikes! It's not even leaning just a LITTLE bit...but a LOT lol. Hope it gets fixed soon!

At least it's leaning AWAY from the road!

Pat Hatt said...

Damn, but as like anything they won't ix it until it breaks for good.

Secondary Roads said...

Why worry? The wires will hold the pole in place. Right?

It'll be a big deal if it goes down and takes the power lines with it!! Brrr! I've also noticed that there's just not the same sense of urgency there used to be.

There was a poor (huge)deer that got hit by a car here and was in the middle of a two lane road...people were swerving into the opposite lane to avoid it (which put them into the blindly-coming-over-a-hill path of the other traffic) --- people called for three days....the deer was finally moved after there was a head on crash. Luckily no one was hurt.

It drives me nuts when I see something I think needs immediate attention and they take their sweet time fixing it. Jeez!

Crazy, isn't it?

alissa apel said...

YIKES! I'd want it fixed as well.

I saw artwork hung at Noodles and CO. The frame looked like the glass could fall out at any moment. I said something. They just said, "It's been like that for awhile." I'm like, "Well I just wanted you to know. It could fall one of these days and hurt someone."

mail4rosey said...


Lemonade? ;) Kidding... although we could be enjoying lemonade in the warm weather by the time they roll around to it.

mail4rosey said...


That's a neat picture you've got up on your site...you were lucky to get that one!!

mail4rosey said...


That's what I'm thinking/hoping.

mail4rosey said...


I thought that too, maybe the ground's too frozen right now to do anything.

mail4rosey said...


me too!

mail4rosey said...


I know, and there's no houses right there. I wonder if it got hit by a car or if it just started leaning...

mail4rosey said...


Crazy thing, that...leaves you shaking your head sometimes, doesn't it. :)

mail4rosey said...


That's EXACTLY what my husband said, with more than a tinge of humor, lol.

mail4rosey said...


Unreal that there had to be a wreck before they moved the deer. That's crazy too...crazier even than this.

mail4rosey said...


The lady on the phone sounded so sincere about sending someone out to take a look, so I'm putting my faith in her that she did. If it leans any further though, I'm calling again, lol

mail4rosey said...


It's the WORST when something is dangerous and intentionally not attended to, ugh, I HATE that

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

What if it snaps the wires one of these days? I hope they fix it soon!

mail4rosey said...

Seems like they could do something, but maybe they can't when it's cold like this? I dunno... if it drops they'll have to do something. Seems easier to prevent rather than fix, but who knows.

stevebethere said...

Oh! yes I see it like Liz says surely they have to fix it soon

Have a poletastic week LOL

Judy Haughton-James said...

I hope they fix it soon Rosey! We see this after a storm or hurricane! Happy WW!

Kristi Maloney said...

I guess if it ain't broke, it's not a priority...I probably have half a dozen on my street alone!! lol

Anonymous said...

You should give it a name while it's still there. :)

Julie Maloney said...

Could still cause some damage if that falls! Don't want to lose power anywhere!

posh said...

Yikes!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Yikes! At least it's leaning away from the road like you said. Maybe it's on their to-do list :)

Lizbeth McGow said...

Wow....are they waiting for a an entire neighborhood to loose power before they do anything?...better start storing gas for the generator....any minute now..LOL..have a great week...with power I hope! Lizy

anotherjennifer said...

~ Noelle said...

Oh dearie my! Let's hope they haven't fixed it because it's harmless and not because they're lazy. :p

Oh I hope they get it before it comes down - be safe!

This is bad, I'm surprised that they have not come to fix it. I wish they come fast and hope that nothing bad happens.


If you have not done so yet, we would love to have you come share/link via our WWHop: http://www.craftyspices.com/hops/wwhop

Hope they fix it before someone gets hurt!

Annmarie Pipa said...

I have never even seen a leaning pole!!!

Dominique Goh said...

That's a really bad slanting pole. Hope that they get it fixed soon before someone gets hurt.

Self Sagacity said...

I am surprise that the pole stood that way for weeks. Hopefully they will come to fix it soon.

Just wow... Thanks for sharing and linking up with me this week. I appreciate it.

alissa apel said...

Sometimes I think they just shove the work of fixing something like that on to someone else. Then it just never does get fixed.
