Wednesday Vignette: Lucky!

I sometimes marvel at how much my garden (and life) are guided by chance -- luck even. A tree falls and somehow misses everything in the yard, a volunteer or two grow in just the right spot to make things amazing, and things like this:


The main electric cable needs to be replaced in your neighborhood but it's located on the other side of the street!


***


This has been going on for several days now, work crews running pretty huge underground cables between the transformers on the street.


The "directional boring equipment" has been going gangbusters -- in fact the have two of those machines now.


My bamboo-heavy hellstrip escaped the digger's scoop this time!


All digging has been across the street -- whew!

Whew indeed! Thank goodness your hellstrip was saved this time. Fingers crossed for continued good luck!

Looks liked you got lucky. Wondering if it was a storm or just a dead tree do to fall.

Fate was truly on your side this time around - whew! I love how lush and green your neighborhood is. I'm slowly working on inspiring my tree-shy neighbors...

Score! Our street is due for some sewer repair work, I am trying not to worry...

Patsi: The cables are underground, so it was just age and the elements that got to them.

Anna: I've inspired at least two of my neighbors, maybe three. We're getting there. :)

Loree: sewer is usually under the street, so I think you'll be okay.

You picked the house on the correct side of (a very lovely) street. Green! Trees that are alive! Refreshing to see that.

Sometimes, every once in a while, good things do happen to good people.

Oh man, I'm having nightmares about a power or gas line running through our yard having to be dug up.
