Pole Position

These giant "telephone" poles south of the Manassas Battlefields, mentioned before, have now disappeared. There were matching poles on the other side of the road as well. I now think they were there temporarily while they worked on the power lines to prevent a dropped line from falling in the roadway.

Either that, or somebody stole six 50-foot poles when nobody was looking...

That's what they are - they are called guard poles and are put in place when installing or replacing conduit exactly so that if there is a problemm the conduit doesn't fall on the road which would be bad both for the conduit and for anyone who happened along on the road at the time.

Thank you, John! The mystery was driving me crazy. LOL.
