I will have you know that this photo came at a great personal cost, that is about 1 year of my life. This photo was taken near the transformer on the corner of my father's property. If he will remember, he must have thrown a spent spray can on the dirt slope near there. Well apparently it had enough propellant in it to make a good little hissing noise as I stepped on it while preparing to send him this photo. So picture it, me fully dressed in my suit (on my way home from Stake Conference) I had just taken this photo and was bringing up my email to send it to him and I hear this hissing sound under my feet. Needless to say my feet next touched the ground about 10 feet away and 6 feet lower in elevation. It was all very involuntary, I heard the hiss, my brain said, "You've just stepped on a snake. Idiot!", then I remembered I couldn't fly either. But I did manage to hold on to my phone.
So the city hit the Mossman neighborhood like gang busters this morning and their first act of official business was to knock over a telephone pole on Valentina. Apparently the boon arm on one of the city trucks caught a Comcast line which spans Valentina; likely under height, and pulled the pole on the East side of Valentina to the South.
