Now this is hilarious to happen after your post yesterday.

I’d had a representative come out from our electrical co-op a few weeks back to discuss adding a second meter on our property for a second structure I want to build.  He noted our original pole was getting along in years and marked it for replacement.  I forgot the conversation until this morning when three trucks from the Springer Co-op showed up to replace the pole.  I told them to leave the old one since I might eventually put together a mountain bike skills course on our property.  Now, if you care to drive out to Cimarron to pick it up, you’d be welcome to it.  Wink




I bet that original one was more than 50 years old!  Those things last forever!  I got a couple like that when replaced at parents house.  Still haven't figured out what to do with them...they were cut up and a little too short for what I need now.

No surprise.   

Another thing I see all over northeast Oklahoma are small concrete bridge sides, many painted yellow now.  If one slows down and looks closely at the end, there is often a stamp from the WPA and the date.  There was one by some friends place in BA at 81st and 145th until just a few years ago when they widened the road to 3 lane.

Antique bridges that still work great.  Just like the state parks built by the CCC.  Infrastructure projects like we won't see again anytime soon.  Especially with the Cheetoh in Chief.
