I'm not a member, but enjoy your site. Thought I could share a few pictures of my own.

I got the call on a Thursday. Would I be able to relocate a service to
the house, as soon as possible? I said the best I could do would be Wednesday of the next week.

Much to my surprise, this is what I found. Apparently his brother-in-law finished the chimney anyway, it was such great weather. And it looks as if they tested the draft, notice the discoloration at the top.

I did relocate the service, but had to take pictures first just to prove this really happened. The Power Company also had a good laugh. The service drop didn't actually go through the chimney, but the drop was wedged between the house and chimney blocks.

Hi VT-YRNUT

I know of one 4/0 SEU service entrance that the masons actually cemented into a chimney.
I'd say it's well protected......
The CVPS meterman walks right by it every month

VT-YRNUT,

Welcome aboard!

Where is the Meter on this house?
Is the SE Cable allowed to be under the siding like that? Or does it go into the wall?
