New Electric Poles And A Very Upset Monkette

Monkette had heard so much about these giant new poles that Florida Power & Light was running through North Miami's residential neighborhoods that she couldn't wait to see what they looked like. After a few days of keeping track of things we finally found a couple of flat bed trailers partially unloaded.

On the left in the picture you can see some of the arms that will support the high tension wires and hold them away from the poles. These things are as huge as they are ugly! No wonder the residents of nearby Miami Shores and Biscayne Park didn't want them in their neighborhoods. That would have been a shorter and more direct route also.

Instead, FP&L decided to route the wires so they go right down N.E. 14th Ave., directly outside of Monkette's bedroom window. She is not a happy girl, not at all! No way! Like the old saying goes, "Hell hath no fury like a monkey scorned!" Stay tuned...

This is the 750th consecutive day of The Price Of Silver and we're still in the Yahoo! Top 100 List, number 72 by volume of hits. Thanks to Todd Frederick for posting the photographs and Jon Sinish for his great advice and editorial skills.
