Cable-cutting by the use of trucks and diggers

Posted in Observations on Jun 27, 2009


On Thursday 25th a truck transporting a digger managed to “hook into” a few of the cables in the crossing a hundred meters from our home. Power, internet and anything else on those wires went out with an accompanying “crash” which turned out to be one of the poles hitting the ground. Luckily no pedestrians there at that very moment. No casualties. But no power for 8,5 hours and no internet (which was worse – the weather being 25 centigrades +) for more than 26 hours. The loss of cable-television did not bother us too much.

    I for one believe that Leonardo (da Vinci) was really smart. And I also believe cats are smart creatures. So when I spotted a nice cat sleeping on a scooter carrying "the signature" Leonardo somewhere in beautiful Italy I just had to "shoot".
