This spool of cable has been hanging from this utility pole for days, maybe weeks.
I have never quite seen anything like this.
This huge spool hanging by a thread from this skinny little pole.
Of course, there is one warning cone sitting right underneath the overhead spool.
Can't you just see that spool crashing down and flattening the cone? [Wonk!]
Then you have some sporadic red warning tape not doing much of nothing.
And cars and people regularly going up and down this street--which you don't really see in this photo.
Maybe the workers just left the spool of cable up there in case they need it again in the future.
Hey, less work lifting it all the way up there again. ;-)
