What is the smaller pole thing sticking out of the ground in this pic?
I believe its part of the electric grid.
Really? I would have figured it would be underground or bigger than that. Was just curious really. Saw someone working on it and since ive always wondered what it was. Thought id ask.
Thanks natr0n. Other suggestions are welcome too if someone thinks its something else.
It is hard to tell from that picture. It should have markings on it, it could be a marker for underground electric, gas, sewer, or water.
My gues its from underground gas.
The truck pulled away and its AT&T. So my guess would be electric as well in this case.
Does your phone or cable run underground? looks like a hook up ped to me.
open it and see what is inside.
Thats a very good question. Im really not sure. Im actually at my g/f's house. As for cable, I assume you mean tv? They have direct tv.
Would be my luck that someone would walk up to me like the guy in your avatar and tell me the same thing.
Top looks more like a vent cap or cover than an access panel, so my guess is maybe an above ground (due to a snowy climate) fill pipe for heating oil maybe. Don't know where that is, but the NE part of the US gets a fair bit of snow and still has oil heated homes. If she doesn't know what it is, it could still be that, but just not used anymore due to a previous home owner having converted to something else. What kind of heat does she have now?
The top does have a lid in it and ut does come off. I noticed that he took this plastic like stuff off of it after he tiok the cap off.
I have a shorter/thicker one right in my backyard myself. They installed it when I got Broadband. One house on the block has to be the place to have it, whatever it is.
I also have a medium sized metal box looking thing with stickers saying high voltage. Just part of the grid I assume. I remember digging near there when I was a kid. hmmm... probably wasn't wise on my part.
The two objects are also quite near each other.
AT&T would be Phone lines. So something relating to the underground phone lines.
Did you spit your coffe out on that? It's a submarine periscope of course!
Confusion as to why you posted it.
Dah, see a similiarity to the pipe?
Some of you guys hove no sense of humor!
Sorry it wasnt making a connection in my brain. But yes, I get it now.
lol sure there isn't water under that snow?
Well the snow IS water so...
It's one of the memory erasing gizmo's from Men in Black. What ever you do don't look at it directly.
Sorry, why is this even in the forums? it's general nonsense
