That electrical supply line really had to go...

old supply line to the house

This is the old electrical line that brought the power from the service entrance, through the garage, under the breezeway, and into the house. Note the lack of insulation and the lovely patina. Note that the patina is on the ground. Yes. The ground. Ack.

corroding electrical cable

In this detail, note the frayed state of the ground. Note that it has been arcing against the conduit it is running through. ACK.

Finally, note that these photos were taken by A.

That looks pretty scary. Glad you got that fixed.

What I really want to know is how it became so frayed. It's not like it's moving around, right?

That IS scary! Glad it's gone!

Scary. Good thing you had that replaced! I'm with you...how did it get so frayed?
