|I dug up the old cable and followed it into the yard|
|The cable pulled up and I saw a frayed end. I found the other end in the middle of an aeration hole. A perfect bulls-eye! What are the odds?|
|I ripped up the rest of the old cable, it was just under the sod so it was easy to pull up.|
|Comcast came out and put in a new line, removed the old line, and stuck the plastic cover on.|
|I don't want them to spray paint and dig up my whole utility box area, so I'm going to bury the cable myself except for the last bit where the box won't close.|
|I used a row of rocks to mark where the cable runs under the flower bed.|
I looked at the hookup inside the green Comcast cylinder and the coax cable is locked onto the connection - probably so people don't steal cable or mess with it - but it also means I can't just unhook it real quick to run it under the lip of the box. Sigh.
So who is to blame here? Is Comcast to blame for never burying their cable in the first place leading to me running it under the sod? Am I to blame for running it under the sod and not digging it down further? Is Lawn Pride to blame for puncturing it? Am I to blame for not marking my cable line before they aerated?
