Just thought when I thought I'd seen it all....

Is this a residential service?

Well, at least theres an acorn clamp on the ground rod!!

Yet another example for "Creative Wiring 101"...

Looks like it's #4 and could have been surface mounted without protection...

This is a residentail service. The LB is 1 1/4" with the feeders from the pole running through to feed the panel in the basement!! They also ran a couple of branch circuit through there to fed some outdoor lighting. It's all gone now, the NEW service passed inspection today!
