Lots of homes throughout our state loss power yesterday. We're a pretty rural state with plenty of power poles. I don't really know what they are called today. We used to call them just plain telephone poles. Whatever they are called they cover the landscape here, city streets and country roads. Someday these poles should be a thing of the past, like the word telephone. Going, going, gone. You see I know cell and phone, but I haven't heard the word telephone in years. When these power poles disappear, oh happy day. Will loss of power during a storm be a thing of the past? Probably not, but I'll tell you one thing the landscape will be a lot less ugly to look at around here. They'll be more trees too. Now, that'll be a good thing.
