This is a follow up to this post where I slightly lamented the fact that we are slowly losing our “boonies” status.
We recently saw a huge cylindrical wire cage type thing at the soon to be cell tower site (which I neglected to photograph for some reason as part of my project documentation). It was deduced by my smart husband that it must be a rebar thing for the concrete base of the tower.
Yesterday, this stuff arrived, which I photographed today while waiting for Cale’s bus.
Concrete forms and a big drill/auger thing.
Word on the street is that we may actually be in the “dead zone,” i.e. too close to the tower. So, we’re going to have an official How Many Bars Do You Have?/Can You Hear Me Now? party once this thing is up and running to find out. While it would be nice to have a phone when we’re in town (people look at me funny when I say I don’t have a cell phone), it’s kind of nice to not have the distraction when you’re here. It’s kind of like a retreat or something.
