Static on the line

February 6th, 2011 · No Comments

Static on our phone lately, and I think we finally figured out why. To the best of our knowledge, the two black wires near the bottom of the page are the phone line to our place (and that of our neighbor, whose home was built at the same time). Both travel under the ground in water-filled pieces of conduit to get to this fine spot of ground behind an apartment complex’s dumpster. One of the wires goes through a plastic bottle (!) full of brown goo, and then both go into an oversized box that appears to be the height of technology from 1980. Four exposed telephone wires leave the box on the lower right, and then are bundled together and travel up the telephone pole and off to the digital world.
