I love communities with power lines underground. You might not even notice the lack of utility poles but you will probably notice something just seems nicer. We have above ground power lines in my neighborhood and I joked about their resemblance to trees here but in reality they compete with the trees. For a few years in a row we had frequent power outages from storms so this past year the power company/s came though with bucket trucks and wood chippers and cut back the trees. Lately I have been noticing how strange the trees look. Trees probably don’t have feeling but who really knows. They do look a little sad. So today, to quote from The Lorax, “I speak for the trees” and make the case for underground power lines!
