It's not supposed to be an electric fence

The excitement of the fence guys went a bit down today. While they were digging they managed to hit a power line and shut off our power for the entire morning. Apparently they were digging too close to the marked line. The fence guys didn’t seem much concerned until the power guys told them they’d hit a 7200 volt line and were lucky to not be dead. Mom was happy about the “not dead” part, as that would have put a real damper on the whole fence experience.

Because of this, the fence guys wanted to dig a bit further in from the marked line, which unfortunately is right on the property line which means that Mom will lose more bushes than she anticipated. All that sacrifice for her pets…
