Photos from a local ski resort where I was attending a wedding. Yes my wife was a little annoyed that I took more pictures of wiring than the wedding.

The bride was radiant in her NFPA complaint flame retardant full length gown (with faceshield)...

...and the Groom looked smashing in his Klein Gaffs, Carolina logger's boots, and Carhartt formal attire

...but it was a bit of a challege for the new couple getting the ring over each other's "Class 3" insulating gloves.

And they rode a bucket truck off into the sunset!

LOL Doug.... You painted quite a picture there! I almost got a tear in my eye! [Linked Image]

If it wasnt for the staples, I'd almost write this off as someone's idea of "temporary".. Curious how long this has been this way, as the orange rubber cordcaps would likely fade being outdoors for any length of time... Could be worse... At least its GFCI protected! [Linked Image]

Scott,

Any idea what that cord is coming through the wall, zip-tied to that conduit?

I wonder who got there first: The plumber who installed that faucet, or the sparky who installed that rigid? [Linked Image]

Don't know what the other wire is. Looks like cat 5. I would imagine the staples would be rusty after a while so I am guessing this is a recent "installation".
