    What an overpaied robot this guy is.I have electricial problem in my yard.When the wind blows hard the trees arc off the wires running adjacent to my house for about 100 yards, it lights up like a Christmas tree.We called 911 when we saw it and they sent two fire trucks with 4 men and waited for TXU to come out because the firemen said it was a fire hazard,well we waited 2 hours(till 2am) when he arrived he said dont hug the trees and it would be ok.That was 3 weeks ago no one has showed up to trim the trees or to look again or anything, it is really scary to see,we have had a lot of wind this year and you can still see it arcing even at sunset.Any suggestions?
