So this is why I haven't updated in a few days... not because of the hole, but because of the cut cable represented by the white line in the hole. Even though we had our yard marked (orange lines), and started digging our hole a "safe" distance away, we still managed to cut the line. :( That's Life!! I hope that they were a little more acurate marking our other utility lines! The website for gopher one claims that they are acurate within 2 feet. You can see from the picture that the white line is more than 24 inches away from the orange lines. The cable guy agreed with me. :) I'm back up and running!!
