Neighborhood updates

The soccer field that we've been watching appear in our neighborhood has a fence around it now. And the soccer goals have appeared. Here's the latest look:

The school to which the new field is attached even sent us a "Dear Neighbor" note, asking us to keep an eye on the place after dark. We've lived here eight years, and that's the first "Dear Neighbor" letter we've ever gotten from the school. I think they're making some strides in the p.r. department.

Meanwhile, if you were around back when the power pole across the street from our house was replaced, we're pleased to report that sometime in the last few weeks, a crew removed the stump of the old pole when we weren't home. And so that story is over:

That made me decide I should contact PGE about our lights dimming when anything gets turned on. We had the main circuit breaker panel replaced two years ago, but that didn't help. Did you lights go out, or just dim? (I'm not sure what you mean by blinking.)

I don't know how else to explain it. The lights would dim substantially, or go out entirely, for a split second whenever a big unit came on. I call it "blinking."

A contractor friend of ours told us that most of the time, these problems were out on the pole. In our case, he was right.

It's pictures like these that make me really miss Portland.
