Picture at the top of this page: Electricity comes even to the woods of Upstate New York (no cable, gas, water or sewer, but a little telephone line runs right through my woods). That pole stands in the water of Mary's pond after spring runoff; you should hear the frogs and other mysterious things there, late on a summer night!
