Day 346 of 365 - High Voltage

I was on my way to drop the boys off this morning before coming to work and noticed someone had stolen about 150 feet of phone line along a heavily traveled State Route. Most people that are doing this kind of theft must think the lines around them only carry 120 volts electric. In reality they are several thousand volts. More and more people are getting killed stealing copper and it is only going to get worse.
