This picture was taken in Louisville, NE. This is a very popular state park. The light illuminates our stars and stripes at night (and during the day for that matter as well)...there is no switch, I sure as heck wouldn't want to go outside to turn on and off this light. It's within a couple of feet where bicycles are rented for people to cruise around the park on.

Looks like cord is stapled to post. Cant tell from the pic but looks like tape below the box. No weatherproof in use cover, but thats the least of their problems.

Is this supposed to be temporary?? Possibly forgotten after July 4th?
A bad idea either way! especially with kids around! [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

electricman2: You've got better eyes (or a better monitor) than I do. I can't even see a box on this mess.

This belongs INSIDE the oil drum, not next to it... [Linked Image]

Funny... I don't see a box either! I think this thing is screwed to a WP 4/O blank & just fastened to the post! Those wires are screaming out for someone to yank on em! [Linked Image] [Linked Image]
