Ever travel through west Texas with a utility lawyer?

No? Then count yourself lucky. Hours and hours of discussion about some giant battery thig-o-majig, CREZ wind power lines, the current carried by those lines over there versus the ones we saw two hours ago. AAAH!

He thinks they were telegraph poles that were converted to electrical poles, because there’s no mistaking the [whatever the frick those bloppers on the poles are called.
