Alan called and said, “Hey buddy. You want to come and help me? I think something got wet.” He’s one of the guys who doesn’t go into manholes thus he doesn’t have any of the equipment to do so. We took some readings and found out that the water had seeped into a splice case in this manhole.
The rain was coming down so hard that my pump could barely keep up with the water coming in. Rarely do we use that big yellow ring but in this monsoonal rain we need to keep the hole somewhat dry… As we were about to go down into the hole we heard the sound of thunder in the distance. We both freaked out… This too will pass
