Edison was finally by today after repeated calls ("Remember when you said you'd be out in 5 days? I understand. I just want a schedule. No, it's just a temporary connection right now - I need the pole to service entrance connection. Yes, the meter has been moved. Tomorrow? OK, that's great.... Can you give me a schedule? Today? That's great!.... Really, all I want is a schedule...). I'm sure they have good reasons for not ever keeping a date, but they finally delivered and I have a new attachment from pole to service entrance.
All that remains is to take out the old electrical box and repair the stucco around new box and where the old one came out.
