Time Warner had told us, when they came out to repair the cable on Tuesday, that it would be 7 to 10 business days before they could bury it. So, we had a pleasant surprise yesterday: two guys with a Ditch Witch pulled up about 5:30, asked me a couple of questions about the water and propane lines, and said "Okay, we'll get it done." By 6, new line was strung (again), the cable was neatly buried (seriously, they did a great job, neatly edging around the driveway and the back patio), and they were gone. I was impressed.
And our cable is buried! Woot.
