    Dang ol' wabbits. We have a house rabbit. When that little sucker is running loose, you better move all the cords.

    Mine is down in the shop as well. For some reason the router won't push it 75' today.

    And our connection supplies the valley floor. Neighbors probably weren't too happy either

    The cable does go overhead, until it hits the hill. Need to get some conduit for the wires, but that's the way the installer hooked it up. Last year they ate the power cord which did know out part of the valley. This year it only affected us...

    I reckon if they take out the power cord, my provider will be out here with the conduit...

    Coyotes were around the night before last. Heard them whooping it up real loud and close to the house around 4:45am... I think I even know the particular Jack Rabbit that did the chewing. Saw him this morning as I was taking bucky out and he ran up that way....

    Had one before too. He only chewed on a power cord once, he left them alone after that.
