Preparing for Mother Nature

Preparing for Mother Nature
We have had a lot of work on the old house recently, that being the old house which we live in. The first part was laying a new mains cable, all paid for by Northern Powergrid, who I had never heard of before, but now I understand is responsible for maintaining the supply of electricity across the North East.
We all got a letter "Notification of Electricity Supply Reinforcement" then later they began digging up the car park and paths to lay new cables. Vans from a company called "Freedom Network" began appearing and men (yes, all men) began to pop out of them and dig and lay cable in the channels.
The cable has been fed through a hole which was drilled in the wall but some more work needs doing before is connected up.

I read in a newspaper recently that governments and companies refuse to mention the words "global warming" preferring various other euphemisms. This post is an exampke of such a euphemism, our power networks are being upgraded to be weather proof, due to the extreme weather events of late. Please visit there for latest news from Herbwormwood
